Smart Kids with LD served as an entry into me learning more about my daughter's disabilities and since that time, I have learned much about the world where kids struggle. Smart Kids made me realize that there is hope for kids who just don't learn the way schools want to teach them. Their brains just work different and that is okay. Smart Kids provided a forum for me to understand my daughter's disability and I in turn have tried to help others.

When my son was in middle school, I finally joined an online support group for Los Angeles parents of children with Aspergers, and it was the best thing I could have done for not only my son, but my husband and me. The parents shared resources with us "newbies" who were having difficulties trying to ensure our kids with learning disabilities were still getting a true education, and not just getting babysat all day at school. This site was suggested, and I signed up for the newsletters. From them, and the resources available on the site, I have learned so much about how to focus on my son's strengths, and how to work around or through his weaknesses. The real-life success stories have given me not just hope but different ideas for my son's future. I get a lot of newsletters in my email inbox, and this is one organization whose emails I never just automatically delete. Each one is completely read, and often forwarded to another parent who might benefit from a particular article! Thanks for offering such excellent information!

Great resource for my sons with ADHD, NVLD et al. I find I use their advice with my "neurotypical" kids, too.

Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities was a resource that was definitely helpful for me and my family. It prepared us for my son's IEP meeting by informing us of the accommodations that were available to us.
It's always a great resource for me when I'm needing to be more informed about what to do next in regards to my son's academic path.

Smart Kids with Learning Disabilies, Inc. is a wonderful site for parents like myself who deal day to day with a child of special needs. I refer to the articles and support that this site provides on a regular basis. I have also referred this site to many of my friends that have LD children and they also find it extremely helpful. I thank them for providing support to those of us who feel we don't always have a place to turn.

Smart Kids With Learning Disabilities and ADHD has been the single most important organization that has helped me as a parent of a child with dyslexia and 3 children with ADHD. The information presented is always clear, understandable, and very empowering to me. With Smart Kids I have found a direction to assist my children and set them on a path to successful school experiences and terrific self awareness. And the information keeps coming, so the learning never stops.

Smart Kids provides very informative news letters and
offers various programs. I have attended some of their
Events and found them to be very helpful for our
Family. As we are moving towards college I am sure
I will be searching out information to help make our
sons journey an easier one. Knowledge and support makes a
difference. Thank you Smart Kids.

I often feel as though the newsletters are written with my family in mind. Smart Kids is an insider's view that addresses issues in a research-based, compassionate way. I get a lot of support from this newsletter and have recommended it to many other families.

I am a mother of two dyslexic children, and I am always in search of learning more about dyslexia, but also about all learning disabilities. Thanks to Smart Kids e-mails; knowledge is power. I will always continue strive to be the best parent I know how. Because understanding my kids worlds help us to be a better family.
