Connecticut Special Needs

and Learning Disabilities

Every child processes information in their own way. However, if school work continues to be a struggle, and academic frustration is more common than success, your child may have a behavioral or learning issue. With this in mind, Connecticut Parent Magazine has organized a showcase, Stepping Stones: Special Needs, for parents to turn to as a source of information.

Local resources make all the different for families who must provide the most comprehensive and effective support for a child in need. Now a staple of the annual Education Resource Guide, we present this as part of CTParent.com. With your support, and with the support of area organizations reaching out to families, your child can meet challenges head on and move forward to a successful future.
