Over the course of this episode you will learn more about:

  • How to identify signs that your child may have a learning difficulty.
  • What steps to take in order to have him/her assessed and by whom.
  • Why a formal assessment may be key to getting your child the help he/she needs.
  • The standardized tests that may be used to assess your child.
  • Whether your child may be stigmatized as a result of being diagnosed Learning Disabled.
  • Your emotional reaction to learning that your child has a learning difficulty.
  • How to advocate on your child’s behalf at school.
  • What resources and supports are available to you and your child.


I just listened your interview with Dr. Helen Zajdeman. I love how you structured all the questions from a professional point of view, but also from the family point of view.
