Where do you go in a world of typical learners? This website has been a source of educational material as well as a location to read stories to know we are not alone on this atypical academic road. Start as early as you can and learn as much as you can so you can carry your "learning differenced " child to college and beyond

I love receiving the email newsletters from Smart Kids! I read it every time I get them and I share the information with my family and teachers. I have a son who has multiple learning disabilities and was diagnosed of ADHD at the age of 4. Since he started elementary school, he was also diagnosed with emotional disability, speech/language delay, sensory disability, and executive functioning disability.

When I first learned about my son’s diagnosis of ADHD, it was very overwhelming. I had no idea the magnitude of how ADHD and other learning disabilities can affect one’s life. I imagined that no matter how much I read about it and talked to teachers and parents who have gone through the same challenges, that there would be an easy fix. My son is now 7 years old and we are still continuing to see these challenges. It’s a lot better now than where we first started. Thanks to the support of Smart kids, family and friends, and teachers in our community.

Smart kids has been a huge impact on my life as I read the newsletters and visit the website often searching for answers and clarification. The information on the website is empowering and gives me hope that my son can excel in school and in life with his multiple disabilities. I’m not alone in this journey. I’m just one of many parents who have daily challenges. The website is a wonderful, smart, genius non-profit hub that I will continue to support as new information is always presented from a professional, educational, clinical, and research background that I respect.

I have taken so many notes from Smart kids and I appreciate very much what a great job you are all doing. Keep up the great work!

Thank you!

Our son was basically left on our own resources by his school after a farce of a PPT meeting. I was intoduced by accident to SKLD at a presentation at my library. I was introduced to a myriad of resources that I only wished I had known of 5 years earlier! Through them, we found a means to have him tested and then a therapist. We also found out how approach then school after endless road locks were thrown in our path.

Smart kids is a wonderful organization that was started to empower parents of children with different learning styles . The information is most helpful in giving tips on how you can help your children and gain support for yourself in parenting in a somewhat difficult landscape . The more you know the more you are empowered to help your child. It has been such a huge help for me in parenting my son with ADHD and learning disabilities . I encourage everyone to check it out.

When you have a child with a learning disability you spend a great deal of time researching and trying to find information to help your child. Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities puts it all together in one website. It's a great resource for parents.

Smart Kids has helped me as a parent access important information for my child to succeed in school. Experts who are in the field of education and parenting have helped me be the most supportive parent of my ADHD child I can be. And what I learn is part of a continuum!

Consistent, high-quality articles that educate parents on issues of concern for their children with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD. They often have a unique viewpoint that I haven't found elsewhere. I feature their work often on the Pinterest page about ADHD that I manage. My only regret is that they don't feature pictures, so I have to create a poster each time I Pin from the site. The content, however, is worth the extra work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add photo to their articles.

I'm sure every parent who suddenly finds out their child has special needs does what we did; look for information, understanding and support. We found it at SKWLD and are very grateful for their work. It helps to give our child's difference a validation.
