Welcome To Kids Enabled
A conversation at the Kids Enabled Gala reignited something I had wondered for a long time… Why is there a discrepancy in learning disabilities around the world? Is it lack of testing? Is it embarrassment? Is it something much bigger? The answer, it turns out, is a myriad of factors.
You’ve probably heard the expression, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” I think we have all felt that way at one time or another, especially when it comes to our children. The neighbor’s kid always says, “Please” and “thank you.” Your child’s best friend makes honor role every semester. Your sister’s kids have such creative teachers and they live in a better school district.
The problem is that you can’t compare apples and oranges. Children are different. They have their own unique styles. They also learn differently. When we compare kids, teachers, and schools, there will always be discrepancies. There is no perfect kid, teacher or school, period. The good news is that there are so many choices for your child – sometimes so many it boggles the mind.
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.
