Welcome Back to our Monthly
As parents, we create positive experiences to support our child's curiosity as they learn and grow. We set our children on course to meet life's challenges.
Our school-age children may experience some challenges with socializing, reading, writing, or other learning-related tasks. It is important to discuss any
challenges with your child’s Pediatrician. Having difficulties does not mean your child has a learning disability. However, an early and proper diagnosis will keep your child on track to having a successful academic experience.
Learning disabilities are disorders that affect the ability to understand or use spoken or written language, do mathematical calculations, coordinate movements, or direct attention. Although learning disabilities occur in very young children, the disorders are usually diagnosed at school age.
Learning and attention issues are far more common than most people think. Over 4 million children in the US have at least one learning disability.
If your child has been diagnosed with a learning disability, Assistive Technology (AT) can assist your child in reaching their full potential. AT will increase your child’s self-reliance, offer the experience of success as well as a sense of independence.
There is a wide range of AT tools available . AT tools can assist your child with:
*Processing and remembering spoken language.
*Computing and organizing math problems.
*Planning , organizing , and keeping track of calendars, schedules, assignments and responsibilities.
*Convert text as speech.
*Physical task of writing, spelling, punctuation, grammar, word usage, and organization.
AT tools can be tailored to your child’s abilities and challenges.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at Healthy Kids Care.
