It used to be that learning differences (called ‘learning disabilities’ in the past) were kept very hush-hush. If you were a child, you downplayed it and did everything you could to fit in with the other kids. If you were a parent of a child with a learning difference, life was lonely, as no one understood your family’s trials and tribulations. Thankfully, those days are over and learning differences have become a part of mainstream culture.
Parents and children often feel a bit overwhelmed as they go through the process of testing, diagnosing, and garnering accommodations. I’ve decided to devote a section of my blog to explaining the various facets of learning differences, from the initial symptoms to remediation and accommodation. Please email me if there are any specific topics you would like me to address. Buckle up, here we go!
