This site is an excellent resource for professionals and parents. I have been working in the field of oral and written language disorders for over 25 years. Additionally, I am a parent of a child with learning disabilities and this site has helped me as a parent resource. Thank you.

My experience in the last 35 years has been as a special education teacher and Learning Disabilities Consultant in NJ. In addition, I have a close relative with LD and ADHD. As President of the Learning Disabilities Association of NJ, I have found Smart Kids with LD to be a good resource for parents and professionals. Additional resources in NJ can be found on the LDANJ website at www.ldanj.org

I have raised 3 children with dyslexia and related learning disabilities and am now an Orton-Gillingham reading tutor. I have read the Smart Kids newsletter for many years and find each issue to be excellent. Topics are always relevant and timely. It functions as an online support group for me and I am most grateful to those who publish it. I have referred many people to it!

I am a Reading Specialist with over twenty years of experience. However, when our youngest grandson was diagnosed with multiple learning challenges, my quest for information moved beyond professional and academic to personal. Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities offers timely, relevant information; I am never disappointed. I also feel the newsletter manages to convey a sense of optimism and encouragement, which is so vital to families with children with special needs.

I am an ADHD Coach and and a parent of a child with ADHD/LD. I have found the experts who are invited to speak at special meetings very well-informed and excellent presenters. Jane Ross has worked tirelessly for well over a decade to provide meaningful, up-to -date information for those of us who struggle everyday with the special challenges our children face.

Smart Kids provides parents with a wealth of information. Jane Ross is incredibly dedicated to sharing these valuable resources with parents who are trying to make sense of the situation they find themselves in. When you have a child with a disability, you must learn about the disability, you must determine appropriate educational interventions, you must understand special education legislation and you need to know this before you ever begin to negotiate with your school district! Jane's organization provides parents with these tools to advance their knowledge and improve their ability to effectively advocate on behalf of their children with disabilities.

I am a Sylvan Learning Center Director in Jackson, MS. I am always searching for information and websites to share with our Sylvan families. I find this site user friendly and very informative. I recommend it very frequently to be used as a resource. Our philosophy at Sylvan is "the more you know the better prepared you are to make decisions about your child." This website is fantastic!
