Website for Parents


I wanted to share this website that was passed along to us.   Understood for Attention and Learning Issues is an interactive parent resource to get advice for social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  This website offers support for navigating everyday challenges to help support your child through his/her development.  I hope you find it helpful.
