Challenge

About 10% of children are affected by learning disabilities (LD), a disorder that impacts a child's ability to interpret what they see and hear or to link information from different parts of the brain. LD leads to specific difficulties with spoken and written language, coordination, self control, or attention. It can impede learning and limit a child’s success in adult life. Without professional help early on, many children fail in school and do not succeed in adult life. This can be changed.

Solution

Children will be diagnosed for a learning disability and will get professional help to develop successful life outcomes, create support systems and build emotional coping strategies. Children will be able to stay in mainstream schools.

Long-Term Impact

Children who early on receive specialized assistance to overcome their learning disabilities succeed in school, improve their academic achievement and learn to lead their lives in a fulfilling way.
