American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Communicate with Confidence – Techniques for Students with Learning Differences,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. EST. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly speaker series, “Experts in Learning Differences.” Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the March event is Eric J. Nach, Ph.D., M.Ed., A.S.D.C., founder and president of the Support for Students Growth.
Before, during and after college, what are the skills young adults with learning differences need in the twenty-first century? The answer is soft skills, also known as communication, time management, organizational and social skills, all of which are vital to student success in college and beyond. Join Dr. Nach, a top developmental and behavioral specialist in the enhancement of student growth and college life skills, who will explain how parents and professionals can identify underdeveloped soft skills and take proactive measures to help students gain greater levels of social and perceptual skills and boost self-confidence to thrive in college and in life.
Dr. Nach is the founder and president of the Support for Students Growth Center located in Boca Raton, Florida. He began his career as a “milieu therapist,” before spending 18 years as a special education department chairperson and teacher with the Palm Beach County school district. Dr. Nach earned a Ph.D., focusing on his dissertation titled “Instructional Use of Research-Based Interventions for Students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.” He is also a nationwide speaker who has presented full-day professional (CEU) workshops in nearly a hundred cities to professionals in the field. Dr. Nach addresses topics such as the perceptional, social, behavioral and transitioning needs of students with learning, developmental and perceptual differences and has over three decades of experience counseling, teaching and coaching children, teens, young adults and their families.
The speaker series is streamed live virtually and all previous episodes are available for viewing at any time. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic.
The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a place to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.
