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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Smart Kids for 11 years. I joined when my then 7 year old son was struggling so badly in school that he would physically shake with anxiety, was unable to focus at all in school, was incapable of making friends. Because of the support I found in this organization, plus the invaluable and practical information it provided to me, my son is now attending a well-respected college and receiving straight A's! Smart Kids told me he could get there and without their support, I am not sure he would. Thank you Smart Kids!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteering for this organization has been very empowering in helping me realize that my son will be successful. I joined Smart Kids as a volunteer over 7 years ago when I thought my world was ending and my child was failing, and this organization buoyed me, supported me, educated me, and helped me to give my child the assistance he needed to be successful. Smart Kids is a community of parents willing to lend a shoulder or a hand, with tons of information on the website, newsletter, and through local programs to motivate parents to push schools to get support. Most importantly, it helps parents to believe in their children, which is the key factor to a child's success. My son is achieving A's and B's in High School, and I am sure its because Smart Kids helped me around the hurdles that were preventing his success.
