For the fourteenth in a series of childhood health topic talks hosted by Optimal Care Pediatrics, Dr. Mondesir interviewed Dr. Jim Forgan, Ph.D., School Neuropsychologist and owner of Forgan Educational Services, on the topic of “Learning Disabilities and Your Child”. We hope you found the information useful with understanding the difference between a variety of learning disabilities, the role of evaluations and testing, what kind of educational resources are available and parental tips on what you can do.
Here are several additional parental resources:
