Hey Parents!

Perhaps you have a child who has been diagnosed with a Learning Disability, and now you have lots of questions.  Or, perhaps you are wondering if your child does have some learning issues, and you want to do some research before seeking advice.

Listed below are some links to webpages that are devoted to helping you understand your child’s learning situation. There are many more links than these few.  However, these have a parental focus.

If you have a favourite site that you have found particularly helpful, but don’t see it here, please let us know so that we can share it with others.
