Between taking care of your kids, going to work, doing housework, paying bills and helping your kids with homework, it’s almost impossible to monitor all the great information we post on our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube pages. That’s why we’re bringing you recent social media highlights. Dive in to see what our community has been talking about!
On Twitter Our weekly Twitter chats are taking off! A conversation with LD experts takes place every Wednesday at 12pm EST in #LDchat. We cover a variety of topics on learning disabilities, related issues like ADHD, advocacy and much more. The discussion is always lively and informative! One of our recent chats was on the social and emotional aspect of learning disabilities. Make sure to read the #LDchat transcript, and join us next week for another great discussion. To find out what the next #LDChat topic is, please visit www.LD.org/LDchat.
More from Twitter: On Tuesday, June 11, we monitored (on Twitter and on Capitol Hill itself) the Senate ESEA markup. It was an exciting conversation, and lots of opinions were shared! Since the discussion was happening during the work day for most people, we summarized some of the highlights for you. Advocate for people with learning disabilities by sharing the highlights to your own Twitter followers.
On Facebook We all love quotes! (Well, I do anyway.) We especially love quotes we can relate to and that make us reflect on our own experiences. A recent quote we posted on our Facebook page had more than 400 likes. Want to know what it was? Click on the link above…and then share it with your friends and family on Facebook.
