  1. Hi. I am wondering if you guys lead any programs for children with learning disabilities, especially reading comprehension. It seems like so many group times are geared more for the average child, but what about those with learning disabilities??? Thanks, Rachel

  2. Hi Rachael,
    We do not offer programs specifically for children with learning disabilities, however all children are welcome to our programs. In researching your request for information I found “Summer Reading Tips for Children with Learning Disabilities.” We will be adding this resource to our web site. You can find it at: http://www.ecac-parentcenter.org/downloads/summerreading.pdf I found this, and a lot of useful information at the Exceptional Children’s Assistance Center, a North Carolina based organization that provides information, education, outreach, and support to and for families with children across the state of North Carolina, with special emphasis on children with learning disabilities.(http://www.ecac-parentcenter.org). Also, the Family Support Network of North Carolina (http://www.fsnnc.org/) provides a Summer Camp Directory which lists day and residential camps serving children who have special needs.
