WHERE TO GET INVOLVED
Smart Kids with LD has started local chapters in parts of Connecticut that serve to educate, guide, and inspire parents of children with learning disabilities and ADHD at the community level. The primary functions of a chapter include increasing awareness, creating a family support network, producing educational programs to help parents become effective advocates for their children, and raising funds for local and national events and programs.
Each chapter relies on volunteer Parent Leaders, and provides networking and support opportunities to members, who also help organize educational and awareness-raising programs and events.

HOW TO BRING A CHAPTER TO YOUR COMMUNITY
Each chapter is run by parents for the benefit of parents and children in their community. To ensure that a new chapter can be up and running quickly, Smart Kids provides step-by-step guidelines and a turn-key process for a smooth start-up.
After start-up we continue to work with parent leaders, providing the tools and templates, the contact management system necessary for chapter operations and member communication, etc. To get started, contact our Chapter Development Manager, Betty@SmartKidswithLD.org
