Welcome to the Stern Center
for Language and Learning
The non-profit Stern Center for Language and Learning is dedicated to learning for all as we recognize that all great minds don't think alike. We are committed to helping individuals identify their learning strengths and finding solutions to challenges that allow everyone to learn.
We evaluate and teach more than 900 children and adults each year including those with learning disabilities, dyslexia, language disorders, autism, attention deficit disorders, and learning style differences.
We design and deliver programs for more than 1,500 educators each year. Research-based information about early literacy oral language, reading, written language, social thinking®, executive functioning, and math is presented through workshops, undergraduate and graduate courses available both live and online, and symposia. Many of our courses may be applied toward additional licensure endorsements in Vermont.
We conduct research on best practices for students and educators to help all kinds of learners succeed.
The Cynthia K. Hoehl Institute for Excellence, established in 2007, serves as an instructional and professional learning laboratory modeling best educational practices, awards grants to help underwrite professional learning opportunities, and reduces instructional fees for eligible families.
The Hoehl Family Foundation’s lead gift to our Cynthia K. Hoehl Building campaign made it possible to combine our Williston programs under one roof, thus reducing expenses and improving service.
