Parents of teens with learning disabilities face a wide range of questions and concerns regarding the education of their children. Periods of transition, particularly the movement through high school to the working world or to further education, can be particularly difficult to navigate. Guiding Teens with Learning Disabilities helps parents as their children shift from teenage life to adulthood. It includes sections on planning for transition, post-secondary education, vocational training, career preparation, and life in the community.

Guiding Teens with Learning Disabilities also covers issues like defining learning disabilities properly, getting eligibility for various educational benefits, understanding disability laws and protections, dealing with mental health issues, figuring out what entitlements a student is eligible for at various stages of his/her educational development, and much, much more.
