Parent and Toddler Group

Parent and Toddler Group

A Parent and Toddler Group is an informal group within the local community, which provides an opportunity for young children and their parents/carers to meet.
Parent/toddler groups can be a great way of meeting other people with children the same age as yours in your area.
While these were traditionally aimed at mothers/fathers, they are now aimed at childminders, grandparents and other guardians.


Parent Advocacy Group

Support parents to advocate on behalf of their child/children who have a disability.
As a parent of a child with learning disabilities it is ultimately your responsibility to assure your child is receiving the appropriate services. First it is important to educate yourself on learning disabilities and in particular your child’s learning disability. Second, collaborate with your child’s teachers and school forming a good working partnership. Third, understand your rights under the law, which will be a key to your success.

LDA can also not only provide resources but also an opportunity to learn from others, and a chance to make friends with others who have children with learning disabilities. There is strength in numbers and it can facilitate change when change is needed. By joining an organization like LDA that advocates for individuals with learning disabilities you can make a difference.
