LD News

Dear Kathy,
The LD journey is about much more than academics. The stress your child experiences with learning due to dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia may also impact your child's social or emotional well-being — and cause problems that affect your home life in addition to your child's school experience. You may have to rethink your approach when emotions (your child's or your own) erupt or melt down.

Read on and learn what signs to watch for and how to tackle social/emotional woes with a support system and strategies to help you stay the course.
