Posted Aug 24 2008 2:19pm
The Frostig Center , located in Pasadena, California, was founded in 1951. It is a non-profit organization that specializes in working with children who have learning disabilities. Researchers at the Frostig Center have followed the lives of children and adults with learning disabilities for over twenty years. Through this research they have "identified key factors that contribute to success." Per the Life Success website ,
"Understanding and nurturing these key factors - called "success attributes" - can aid in a child's development and ability to overcome LD. Each of the six success attributes - self-awareness, proactivity, perseverance, goal-setting, support systems, and emotional coping strategies - has been shown to lead to successful life outcomes for children with LD.
Building from their 20+ years of research, the Frostig Center has made available two Life Success guides. One is for parents and the other is for teachers . You can view the parent guide online or download the pdf here . (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download the pdf)
