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!

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 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 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.

I am a mother of a dyslexic child. My daughter is a senior in high school and looking toward college. The personal experiences shared by learning disabled college students on Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities website has been very insightful. I appreciate their honesty and know I can help my daughter in not only selecting the right university but also be successful while there. I can't tell you how many articles I have read that make me cry both from knowing that I'm not alone and finally having some answers. Thank you!

I have subscribed for over a year and look forward to each newsletter for all the great information that it always has. We found out our daughter had dyslexia about a year ago and I had no knowledge of what that really was or how to help her. Smart Children with LD helped me so much in getting her the right kind of help and was so helpful when I was getting her IEP. I'm not sure I would of been able to get through all of that without this wonderful resource. I'm always recommending this site to anyone I meet with children who have Dyslexia or ADHD, it's so much helpful information.

Excellent resource full of timely and relevant information. Helps me to help my son in numerous ways: Explanations of LD/ADHD, IEP info and advice, homework and summer help, stories from parents and students... This is the resource I turn to when I have a question. Also love getting updates and news in my inbox and liking on Facebook page means I can share things with friends and increase awareness about LD/ADHD. It was also recommended by my son's specialists at Tufts Medical Center for Children with Special Needs. Thank you!!

As the mother of a newly diagnosed 10 year old dyslexic, I was lucky to find SKLD. Their informative articles are full of helpful information and fantastic links to resources and research. Their Facebook page is one of my 'must haves' !
