Welcome To Kids Enabled
With summer in the air, many parents worry about how to keep their children’s brains occupied with something other than TV and video games. It’s a very valid concern, as kids lose an average of two months of math computation skills and 25% of their reading skills over the summer. Is it any wonder that teachers typically spend between four and six weeks re-teaching material when kids return to school in the fall?
The following is a reminder to remain sane -
“Mom, what’s the plan?” and “What’s next?” are two questions I get every day from my child. I do not have a small child – he is 18 – but he still wants to know the schedule of each day. Actually, he needs to know not only what is coming next, he needs transition time and cues. Even during Spring Break and summer, when your days tend to take on a slower pace, a schedule keeps things relaxed and sane. Think of it this way – A schedule a day keeps the stress away.

The Friends of Kids Enabled Scholarship is designed to meet the needs of the learning differences community in the Atlanta area by providing families financial access to programs that serve children with learning differences.
ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS NOW THROUGH 12/01/2015 FOR OUR ANNUAL
There are incredible resources in the Atlanta area for the 1-in-5 child who struggles with learning differences. These resources come at a cost – a high cost that is not covered by insurance or the public school system. Families are making very hard choices. They have to forego some therapies and educational interventions when their funds do not stretch far enough to cover the costs. There are parents who are spending thousands every month to pay for speech therapy and just waiting until they can afford the tutoring and social skills counseling that they also know are needed.
