LD.Org Offers Improved Web Site for Parents

The National Center for Learning Disabilities has revamped its Web site LD.org in the hopes of making it a one-stop shop for parents seeking a variety of information.

It offers several new sections with lots of user-friendly resources. The "LD Basics" section discusses various types of learning disabilities and helps to make sense of the latest research. "In the Home" is a section that offers tips that would help parents with daily challenges and expectations of having children with learning disabilities. "At School" includes information that would assist parents with advocating for their children in the school system.

For parents of older children, the "College and Work" section offers strategies and tools for helping children transitioning from high school to work or college environments. The "On Capitol Hill" section features education and civil rights legislation that affects students with learning disabilities
