    What exactly is a language-based learning difficulty? Our first module discusses the co-occurrence of language difficulties and how to properly have your child assessed. We also cover ways to support children and form strong bonds with them.

    In our second module, we describe techniques for establishing a good relationship with parents, teachers, and administrators. We also address some major language disabilities: dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.

    Children with language based learning disabilities struggle with auditory and visual processing skills. In this module we discuss concepts behind information processing, memory, and sustaining attention. We also describe how to manage symptoms of ADHD.

    In our final module we take a look at how to navigate life outside of school. We describe ways to promote social skills, increase independence, gain employment, and create healthy lifestyles.
