By Bridget Fetsko — June 10, 2020 4:06

When it comes to parenting students with learning differences, each family’s experience is unique. In this three-part series, parents offer a window into their world during the coronavirus pandemic, discussing everyday life and the challenges that come with it. Despite the struggles, they remain hopeful that their children and all students will receive the support they need both during distance learning, and once schools reopen. In part one of this series, these families open up on their challenges, the lessons they’ve learned through this journey and the schedules they’ve implemented to try to address their students’ needs.
