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

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
