Reading Rockets and 14 other nonprofits have been developing a new digital destination for parents of children with learning and attention issues — and it's unlike anything available today. It's called Understood, and it's launching just in time for the new school year.
We conducted research with thousands of parents — and one thing was clear: They want to understand and empower their kids. We created Understood to help them do that, and to give them the information and resources to work as effective partners with their schools.
Understood.org is designed for parents of kids ages 3-20 with learning and attention issues. Access to the entire site is available free of cost. Parents get secure access to personalized support, the wisdom of other parents, and expert information about the "what is" and the "how to" of their kids' academic, social and emotional needs.
Developed by parents, experts and people with their own learning and attention issues, this resource helps parents understand what they can do to support their children at home and in school. Understood is optimized for web, tablet, and mobile and is offered in English and Spanish. Understood.org offers:
Personalized recommendations for content, tools and technology matched to the child's needs
Practical advice to help navigate common behavior challenges
The opportunity to talk live with experts in learning and attention issues — every day!
And that's just the beginning!
Have a look — and if you think Understood would be helpful to the parents of your students, let them know!
