For a long time the pediatric healthcare professional community has not had a comprehensive place to find easily accessible and reliable information about learning difficulties and disabilities (LD). AAP has partnered with the National Center for Learning Disabilities and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners to develop the LD Navigator, a free comprehensive resource guide about LD for pediatric healthcare professionals. From identification to diagnosis to discussion with parents, the LD Navigator can guide you step by step. Explore the LD Navigator and uncover all of its valuable and up to date resources by visiting http://ldnavigator.ncld.org/.
