Raising a Child with a Learning Disability: A Mother's Story


What does a parent do when she suspects her child has learning difficulties? How can she advocate for her child when everyone keeps telling her that her child will "just" grow out of it, that he'll learn to read when he's ready? In this article, a mother tells her story about her struggle for success-and how she found the resources to identify her son's reading difficulties, as well as the supports he needed to succeed.

In another article, her son shares his perspectives about what it is like growing up with a learning disability.
