Do you have a student who lacks motivation, can't get their work done, or struggles to make it through the day? More than likely, the issue your student is facing is deeper than a learning challenge. In this week's episode, we dive deep into the intimate connection between learning disabilities and mental health and how to help students change their brains to get victory in both areas.

Our special guest this week on Empowering Homeschool Conversations was Shelley Woon, 30-year education veteran and Head of School at Arrowsmith. Shelley shared with us about "The Intimate Connection Between Mental Health and Learning Disabilities"
