This paper is designed to help parents in laying a solid foundation of learning experiences for their child with learning disabilities. It introduces three strategies, a rationale, and examples for each strategy that may help parents promote future school success for their child with learning disabilities. The first strategy urges parents to create a sound foundation of experiences early in the child's life that will empower him or her to learn. Examples given include letting a child help in grocery shopping, going to the post office, driving to some destination, or organizing a room in the home. The second strategy suggests immersing a child of any age into a literacy environment as much and as often as possible, by reading at night to the child, reading several times a day, reading a book related to real life situations, and creating a book with a child. The last strategy proposes encouraging children with learning disabilities to experience play and recreation with other children before attending school. Parents are urged to allow their child to become involved in a sport, join a group of children on an outing, and take part in play dates. (CR)
