A learning disability causes difficulty in an area of learning, such as reading, writing, or math. Challenges in one or more of these areas can affect a child’s ability to thrive in the classroom. But it’s not always clear to parents what to do when their child is struggling. Where can you turn to get an evaluation for your child? What kinds of accommodations and services are available in school?
In our first episode of Ask Ellen, our new Facebook Live Q&A series, Dr. Ellen Braaten answered questions from parents and caregivers on how to support kids with learning challenges, and ways to keep the learning going while they’re at home. Tune in to find out how you can advocate for your child and help them be more successful in school!
