Schwablearning.Org Launches Interactive Tool to Help Parents of Children Struggling in School

Study Reveals Most Parents Take "Wait and See" Approach to Identifying Learning Disabilities

SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Schwab Learning, a nonprofit program of the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation dedicated to helping families of children with learning and attention problems, announced today their launch of a new interactive tool for parents who suspect their child may have a learning problem. This one-of-a-kind resource, "When Your Child Struggles with Learning: A Step-by-Step Guide for Getting Help," (http://www.schwablearning.org/steps/) takes parents on a virtual journey through the complex process of getting the help they need to determine if a learning disability (LD) is present, covering topics from considering why a child might be struggling in school, through the formal evaluation for learning disabilities, to tips for how to advocate on a child's behalf.

A 2000 study, Measuring Progress in Public & Parental Understanding of Learning Disabilities, (http://www.schwablearning.org/about.asp?page=4.6) prepared for the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation shows that parents and pediatricians overwhelmingly adopt a "wait and see" approach when they suspect a possible learning problem in their child. Because many parents find the LD-identification process to be confusing and intimidating, the new interactive tool from SchwabLearning.org is designed to make it easier for parents to address their child's problems earlier by providing them with a single valuable resource that they can turn to as soon as they suspect a learning problem.

"Our goal is to help children achieve despite the obstacles," said Jodell Seagrave, managing director of the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation. "Early intervention and ongoing support for children with learning disabilities is critical for success in school and life. Our interactive guide enables parents to easily find useful ways to facilitate their child's success."
