Have you discovered the website understood.org yet? This website is designed for parents of a child with learning and attention issues. The website has great resources for anyone wanting to know more about learning disabilities and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. For example, it can take you through simulations of these different disabilities, helping parents and other adults understand more about the child’s disability. It offers information to help with school work and tips for how to have a great IEP meeting. It offers suggestions for assistive technology and how to empower children to better understand their own disability. We really enjoyed the personal video interviews of students with disabilities and the families who support these children.
We think you will find this website useful and we hope you will share it with the families in your school.
