Mission Statement

  • The child suffers if the parent-school relationship is adversarial instead of collaborative.
  • Understanding learning and attention difficulties, as experienced in the classroom and at home, is the key to a good partnership between the school, parents and students.
  • Parents can't teach educators; parents must teach other parents, and educators other educators.
  • A strength-based approach at school and home is most effective in helping students reach their full potential.

Description

We are a grassroots organization with national impact, founded in 2003 by a group of parents whose children have learning and attention difficulties, and who individually struggled to find the information, services, and expertise to help their children succeed academically. They did not want other parents to experience the isolation and frustration they encountered. They came to believe strongly that parents and educators must work collaboratively to help LD children understand their strengths and individual learning styles.
