I'm sharing an article with you that has a bit of a different focus - instead of the child's experience with a learning disability, this article is actually about the emotional experience of the parent of a child with a learning disability.  

The author reviews the stages of grief that parents go through when they realize that their child has a learning disability.  They, in essence, are mourning the child that 'should have been' or the 'perfect child' that they had imagined they would have. 

I'm curious to hear if any of you have had a similar experience - please share!

I'm not a parent but was one of those kids. The problem in society today is that we only see the DISABILITY in people especially when it comes to kids in schools. I have a dexterity problem with my fingers and that's the only problem I had. However I was accused of having ADHD and was only looked at as hyper kid.
