Schwab Learning.org
A premier site for anyone who has a child with learning disabilities. Our vision is to help kids with learning differences be successful in learning and life. In order to accomplish this, we'd like to be your guide through the LD journey. While anxiety about LD generally is high, parents often have a limited understanding of learning differences. Our goal is to change that, because an informed parent is the best advocate for a child with LD. We've been providing LD information and resources to parents since 1988. We've conducted studies to understand how LD impacts the child, the parent and the family. We've combined our experience with our findings in this Web site in order to help parents become agents of success in their children's lives.
