Why We Share: What to do When Your Child is Diagnosed as “Fine”
Parents take their children for assessments when their child is thought to have a learning disability. Too often, children are diagnosed as “fine”. This diagnosis is troubling as “fine” does not describe the cognitive complications a child may be experiencing. In this video, Kyra sheds light on what to do when a child is diagnosed as “fine” for parents, teachers, and other therapists. We hope with this video that viewers reconsider what “fine” means and consider a second opinion when “fine” is indicative of “not fine”.
