Finding Help for Parents & Children with Learning Disabilities
Studies reveal that 1 in every 12 children has a speech, language, or other communication challenge. In fact, many of our users report that their children are struggling with attention, communication, and/or learning issues. These all fall within the top 10 caregiving concerns reported between 2016 – 2018, as follows:
A child’s ability to process language and communicate effectively can cause he/she to struggle in school or perform below grade level. It also lies at the heart of more basic skills, such as listening, speaking, and thinking. That “something isn’t quite right” feeling is often a cause of significant stress for parents, making them preoccupied, worried and looking for answers – before, during and after work hours.
We find that parents often sense that their child is struggling in school, at home, or with friends and that is when they turn to Torchlight to help guide them.
