Parenting a child with learning and attention issues can be a rough and isolating journey. Everyday, we receive emails, Facebook messages and calls from parents who feel confused and alone in their efforts to support their kids.
We want you to know that we’re here for you as you travel this path. Here on LD.org, we represent a community of 60 million people—the combined one in five Americans who have learning and attention issues. October is LD Awareness Month, and we’re sending out a clear message: you are not alone. Check out our new video, dedicated to all parents of children with learning and attention issues.
Share this video with friends and loved ones whose children are struggling with LD or related issues. Not sure how to start the conversation? Our new article “17 Ways to Start a Conversation About LD” presents suggestions from LD experts, parent advocates and more on how to begin talking about your child’s learning and attention issues.
And we have a full slate of resources and activities planned to support you and help you raise awareness about LD this month. Make sure you “like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our email updates to keep up with everything we’re doing this LD Awareness Month.
