Welcome To Kids Enabled
Sometimes it’s difficult to determine if certain struggles or behaviors are just a normal part of the learning process or an indicator of a deeper issue. There are certain behaviors, however, that can be red flags that a cognitive skill deficit may be holding back a child’s potential.
I once read that “You owe it to everyone you love (including yourself) to find pockets of tranquility in your busy world.” How true this is for all of us but, in particular, busy parents of children with learning differences. We are most in need of time for ourselves but we can’t seem to figure out how to find it. I have some good news for you – Dr. Joan Teach is offering a workshop for parents who do not have time for a workshop. The following is what she has to say about her workshop, “Learn to Control Your ADHD Life.”
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.
Kids Enabled Youth Support is a program offered by Kids Enabled which provides encouragement, education and financial support to the community of learning differences in Georgia. The goal of the program is to enable school-aged children with learning differences by offering discussion groups and workshops for parents, as well as program scholarships for children to better their educational and social wellbeing.
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.
Kids Enabled created the Friends of Kids Enabled Scholarship Fund to help with these costs. We are able, through donations from our community, to fund therapies for children who would otherwise go without. In partnership with Kroger, you can be the difference between success and going without. It is as simple as using your Kroger card when you shop for your family and our scholarship fund can grow to support families who need additional therapy for their children. Who knows? It may even be your child who benefits!
Here’s how it works -
