Learning Difference Network is a parent and educator group that began in Verona, Wisconsin and continues to serve Greater Madison, Dane County, and surrounding counties. Our purpose is to connect parents and teachers who provide support to children that learn differently. Many of the adults who have attended meetings or joined the email group have family members or students that face challenges in reading, writing, math, organization, and/or attention. Parents are able to network and learn about advocacy, specific types of learning problems, and the joys and challenges of supporting these amazing kids.
Parents of children who struggle tend to experience a great deal of uncertainty. This is especially difficult when parents first begin the journey of seeking a free and appropriate public education for a child with learning challenges. Teachers who help our kids all always welcome and often have a unique perspective on managing specific challenges.
