Learning & Attention Issues

15 million children ages 3-20, or 1 of every 5 kids in the U.S., have learning and attention issues and many may never receive a formal diagnosis. In the classroom, these students can appear distracted, disengaged, or even disrespectful, leading to the misperception that they lack interest, motivation, discipline or intelligence. If adults could see school through the child’s eyes, they’d see the confusion, frustration and isolation that comes with their struggle to learn. With the right support from parents, educators and the community, kids with learning and attention issues can thrive academically, socially and emotionally. They have the same potential for success as their peers. A new PSA campaign helps parents understand the two sides of learning and attention issues, driving them to Understood.org for resources to foster support and success in school and life.
