LP Online Participants

“I'm LOVING the program. I get SO MUCH out of the webinars - advice, suggestions, ideas, hope, and encouragement. Thanks for what you are doing for us!!”

-- Sandy L. (Level 2)


"We are enjoying the program immensely because it's easy for me to implement into our school day, enjoyable and interesting for him and he feels successful. Thank you so very much!"

-- Joni P. (Level 1)

"The Learning Program gave me the confidence to know that I was doing everything right and that I can be the best teacher for my son, and thanks to your videos I know I'm doing a good job."

-- Parent (Level 1)

"I think LP Online is incredible. While I'm very anxious to get to some of the topics that are at the end of the training, I appreciate and like how the program is laid out, giving participants plenty of time to think about/learn/reflect on each session. Things are going very well at home using this with my daughter."

-- Jen B. (Level 1)

"We have participated in the Learning Program Online since it piloted in 2013 when our son was just short of 3 years old. We are certain that the success he had in kindergarten last year was in part due to the work we have been doing with him using the principles, ideas, and materials from the LP program. Besides reading and math, the program covers useful aspects like inclusion in school, how to help your child with independence, and how to motivate your child. Dana's presentations explain the basis of our learners' typical learning style, how to work with them and gives suggestions for resources and materials. Every month, a 'homework' plan is supplied and for the last two years access to the Raz kids and Headsprouts Online reading programs was included. We highly recommend the LP Online Program for anyone who wants to help a child with Down Syndrome learn."

"I think the online program is amazing! Our sessions are short but I have found them to be very effective. Z shows so much pride in himself when we finish each book and we give high fives! It makes this mommy very happy to watch her son love learning! Thank you for all you do to make this available to so many families." [paraphrased]

-- Stephanie L. (Level 1)


"This is a wonderful program that is terribly helpful to those of us not close enough to an in-person program- and who also live in districts behind the rest of the country (and in our case, state) in terms of educating our kids! This has been incredibly helpful to us. Thanks again- so much!"

"English is my second language and it's not easy to teach anything my child (with DS) using English as well as other native speakers would do. So I thought this program would help me to understand more profoundly how to break down the teaching process and make her learn effectively. Thank you for the wonderful sessions by a very knowledgeble speaker and very useful materials. It was worth experiencing the whole program."

-- Parent (Level 1)

"There is so much information out on teaching reading, math, memory that it's useful to see the highlighted information vetted and distilled down into a series that a parent can understand and has time to watch and implement."

-- Parent (Level 1)

"We were lucky enough to hear about the Learning Program seven years ago when our family attended a DSE International conference in Texas headed by Down syndrome expert, Sue Buckley. She and some other parents shared that there was this incredible Mom out in California, Dana Halle, who had taken all of this relevant research and applied it in creating a practical, parent-empowering program to help supplement formal school instruction. Our family got to be a part of the LP Online pilot and have been grateful participants ever since. We highly recommend the LP Online program to parents and other educators as we work towards our children becoming fully included in our local schools and communities - plus Dana is just a very warm, knowledgeable, humor-filled teacher with whom you will enjoy spending some time!"

-- Juliette W. (Level 3)

"I feel this platform gives me the guidance and confidence I need to educate my daughter. Before it I often felt as though I was floundering."

-- Parent (Level 1)

"The program keeps me on track and makes me find the time to work with my child. It gives me lots of ideas and advice and it helps to connect to other parents."
