Web Site of the Week: LD Online

LD Online is a website focused on providing information on learning disabilities (LD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) which is geared towards parents, teachers, and professionals.  The site is an educational service of public television station WETA, and also works with the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities.  Visitors will find that the site addresses both children and adults with LD and ADHD, and those who are unfamiliar with LD and ADHD will appreciate the site’s “Getting Started” link, which has “LD Basics”, “ADHD Basics”, “Questions + Answers” and a “Glossary”.  The “Multimedia” link of videos, audio, and transcripts will give visitors the opportunity to listen to or watch experts in the field. They can also listen to the personal stories of families, teachers, and kids with LD or ADHD.  Practical tips for parents are also offered in the Multimedia link. Users will be pleasantly surprised by the optimism and determination of some of these kids, when reading their personal stories in the “Your Stories” section. [KMG]
