A child with LD often gets frustrated with the amount of schoolwork she gets during the school year. Talk to your child's school to see if she can work during the summer to complete tasks ahead of time, such as reading chapters in a book, or researching topics that will be covered in the upcoming year.

One reader offers ways to make completing assignment fun, such as surfing the Internet for interesting websites on specific topics, or creating a puppet show or skit to demonstrate her understanding of a book she just read. She'll be having so much fun, she won't even realize she's preparing for the school year.
