2012 is well underway and we are about half way through the school year. I am sure that the year has already had its share of challenges.

As I think about topics to write about for the coming year, I am looking for input from you. What questions or concerns do you have?   What are the things that keep coming up for you that you would like a straight answer?
A percentage of future blogs will be devoted to responding to your questions, so that the material is meaningful to you.
Topics can be any that involving school struggles, assessment, treatment,  dyslexia, reading problems, educational interventions, 504 Plans, IEPs, special education, behavior, diagnoses, classification or anything related. Really anything under the umbrella of the scope of, “School Struggles, Learning Disabilities & Other Kid Stuff” is grist for the mill. If I can’t answer your question, I will do my best to find someone who can.
There are different ways to send in questions or comments:
      1)      Shut-Down Learner Website:
