I am Mira Halpert. I have a Master’s Degree in Education, and for the last 13 years I have been helping parents to reduce stress and help their children to be much more successful.
Two of my children were diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD, but the truth is, they are really Bright Right-Brained Learners - like most smart struggling students.
I define a right-brained learner as a person who learns best when seeing and experiencing information.
13 years ago we were told our daughter was not college material, because her reading comprehension was 3 years below grade level. It took me a couple of years to put a program together for her, and when I did, Julie gained 4.2 year in her reading in 7 months.
Since then we have had teenagers gain 2, 3, 4, 5 and in one case 6 years in their reading comprehension in 4 months.

Schools are trying hard to help your child.
The first three things you want to do are to:
1- Understand your options -- passing the 10th grade FCAT is one way to get a diploma; achieving certain scores on the ACT or SAT is another way; and a waiver is a slim possibility. Going to a private school is yet another option.
2- Talk with your child's guidance counselor to share insights into where your child has been struggling, where help is needed and what you can do to make the difference.
3- Learn more about how serious the challenge is and what you can do about it.
Our story is more typical than we thought. We have had many teenagers take our reading assessment, only to find out that their child's reading is 3, 4 or even 5 years below grade level.
Many more parents have been stunned when they see how poorly their child tracks when reading.
At 3D Learner, we help the smart struggling kids who often:
- Learn best when they see and experience information
- Have trouble tracking when reading
- Often do not do well on high stakes tests
- Are capable of doing much better if they are taught to their strengths, while their issues are addressed
We know you are concerned, and we regularly have parents’ briefings at our Boca Raton Office, and teleseminars, where a parent can participate from anywhere in the US -- for only the cost of a phone call.

The parent briefings are specifically designed to help you make the difference
