It’s tough for parents to find out their child might have a learning disability. Especially if it’s not something the parent has ever experienced before. Of course, there is so much information to sift through that it can become incredibly overwhelming, especially if the diagnosis is unexpected or comes later in the child’s academic career. Fortunately, there is an abundance of expertise available to help children and teens with learning disabilities overcome their obstacles.
To help eliminate some of the frustration parents face, I’ve gathered a list of resources. I think there is some great information here, and I’m hopeful you think your readers will benefit from what I’m sharing.
