As you celebrate the end of the school year, do you worry that your students won't retain what you've taught them? Summer is a break from school, but it doesn't have to be a break from learning. Understood and its founding partners have created resources to help parents keep their kids learning all summer long.

Encourage parents to visit the Understood Community to join conversations with experts about summer learning strategies.

https://www.understood.org/en/community-events/groups?utm_campaign=partner&utm_source=cast&utm_medium=blog&utm_content=summer
Ask parents who've been there. Join an online parent support group for learning and attention issues to get advice and talk with parents like you.
