"Imagine going to work and not being able to do your job. Now imagine that you can't leave your job. Imagine having to do that every day. This is what life is like for children with learning disabilities." (Dr. David Urion, Director, Neurology and Learning Disabilities Program, Children's Hospital, Boston)
