Transcription: 
A terrific resource when you're worried about your child's learning, especially if they seem to have a language or reading problem, is the International Dyslexia Association. This is particularly useful if you live in an area which it does not have a multidisciplinary clinic when you can have your child evaluated. Information is power for parents. When you have a child with difficulty, you need all the information you can get. A well informed parent is usually the key to a child's success.
