Has your child been diagnosed with a learning disability?
Dr Carol Leibovich – Mankes can provide you with guidance and parenting tips, so you can boost your child’s self-confidence and success at school, and in life.
Having a child with a suspected or diagnosed learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and related disorders can be very confusing and stressful for parents. It is also compounded by feelings of guilt and worry that they as parents are not doing enough of a good job with their kids. Unfortunately many marriages fall apart due to the disagreements, feelings of hopelessness and financial burdens that accompanies parenting a child with a disability.
Don’t just rely on self help books, Facebook, google articles etc. to teach you what you need to do. I, Dr. Carol Leibovich – Mankes will use my expertise to guide, and provide you with the tools to be the most effective parent and advocate for your child.
Your job as a parent is not to “cure” the learning disability, but to give
your child the tools they need to work through challenges.
Another concern for parents of a child with a suspected or diagnosed disability is the ability to recognize behavior that can be disciplined VS behavior caused by underlying difficulties.
I, Dr. Carol Mankes can narrow down reasons for your child’s behavior and help both of you reach more productive and enriched life.
