Kid's With Learning Disabilities

Hello Fellow OSU Mom's :)

Is anyone else out there dealing with a child with dyslexia? I recently found out that my eight year old daughter has this diagnosis.

This entire process of educational testing and setting up an IEP with the school has been emotional & trying for my family.

When my daughter becomes frustrated she has an emotional response or she completely shuts down and wont try.

Is anyone else going through this and what has worked?

I look forward to your feedback & suggestions.

  1. I haven't had this experience personally, although my neice is almost 7 and currently going through the "ruling out" testing, to figure out exactly what's going on!

    I know that the staff at the Nisonger Center here on campus has lots of helpful information especially about navigating schools with IEPs. Consider contacting someone there! Anyone else have ideas!?
