The Brain Biology of Learning Disabilities


For the last two weeks, I have been writing about a 9 year-old boy named Will who is struggling with reading. I prepared a short video explaining some basic, yet very important information about the biology of the brain. I am sending this video to Will because I believe it will give him hope and build his confidence. As a wise friend told me last year, when I was smack in the middle of trying to find help for my son, “Once you identify the problem, 50% of it is solved!” So true!

I hope this small snippet gives Will, and other students who struggle like Will, a better understanding of what their dynamic brains are capable of! Please, please, please share this with anyone you know who may be struggling with a learning disability.
