When it comes to finding new ideas and resources, you cannot say enough about the community. Whether you are looking for a new daycare facility, changing your child’s school, or looking for a summer camp, there are always resources available. Community provides you with the opportunity to collaborate, share ideas, and meet more people.
Community resources are especially beneficial for families who have a child with a learning difference. By collaborating with others in the community, families can find schools and job opportunities that are especially supportive. They can also find information about scholarships, grants, and other people to talk to who have walked a similar path.
