Often, it is most helpful to learn by watching videos. Videos can be a great way to learn more, or foster a conversation, about learning disabilities. Being educated about learning disabilities can help your child to cope and develop strategies to help with their disability. While there are many videos that aren’t worth watching, there are many that are. We have collected some of the best videos available on the Internet.
