Playing with friends is a daily ritual for most children. But kids with learning disabilities are often isolated and rejected. Rick Lavoie addresses the social problems these children face — and offers some practical solutions for parents.

Host Richard Lavoie, a nationally-known expert on learning disabilities, explains why this happens - and what parents or teachers can do to help children improve their social skills.

The accompanying viewers' guide is available for download.

Available in DVD format.
