Review for Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities, Inc., Westport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I wish we had found SMART kids with LD much sooner. The straight forward and possitive messages they provide on the web site are sorely needed in a field where so much of the infromation and advice given starts with emphasizing the negative and focusing on learning differences as disabilities and deficits. We found the SMART kids wonderful web site from doing a search for scholarhips for students with LD. I was overjoyed to find a website that was celebrating what my family knows to be true, that dyslexia and ADHD can be a gift and we should celebrate our brain's different way of processing information. Filling out the application for the award was an incredible experience and reminded our family how far we had come from when we first found out our son was carrying on our family's dyslexic legacy. We have recommended the website to all the families we meet that have the challenge of attending a school that is not providing an environment complimentry to our learning differences. This web site reduces long articles written about dsylexia and ADHD into short and straightforward articles, which allow a dyslexic households to learn and act on valuable information and experience!
