    Many of us know a child who experiences learning difficulties in school, or parents whose child struggles with a learning difficulty.


    However, we seldom look at how having a child with learning difficulties impacts the entire family as well as the family structure and dynamics. Of course, if this is true, then it will influence our counselling strategies when counselling such an individual, a family, or one of the parents.


    In this course we take an in-depth look at how the dynamics of such a family are influenced and how it will influence your counselling strategies and outcomes.
