Millions of American children struggle daily in schools, social environments and even home settings because of a learning difference.
All of these children can learn, however this model of child does not come with a manual which explains that they learn differently, hence the term learning disability.
The way in which they are "hardwired" affects the way they process ALL information. Therefore in many instances, the disability is invisible and it is the effects that are seen.
Not responding to a child that is struggling over and over again can manifest into very serious problems if appropriate steps and interventions are not taken to help these children, which can include the entire family.
With understanding and enlightenment, parents and teachers can implement the right supports to help empower their children and students to achieve success!
