Playing Daymond John Overcame a Learning Difference & Works With a Nonprofit Helping Parents Understand Them

Understood.org is a nonprofit that helps parents understand the needs and identifications of kids with learning differences. "Shark Tank" investor Daymond John, who is working with the organization, shares why the nonprofit's efforts are close to his heart — and why the resources they provide are more important than ever for parents and kids during remote learning

"This is an organization that addresses people who have learning differences — such as myself — dyslexia, ADD, ADHD. Parents today have been thrown into this thing of being the parent and being the teacher as well. What's happening with a lot of our children is because they're virtually learning they're not getting the level of education that they should, and especially for those with learning differences," Daymond says.

"However, a lot of parents and caretakers are becoming teachers and they're starting to see or being able to identify that maybe their child does have a learning difference and maybe they can address it earlier on in the child's educational process so they can catch up."

"They have this very unique memory device that's called Take NOTE," Daymond adds. Here's what the acronym stands for.

N: Notice if anything is out of the ordinary with your child.

O: Observe behaviors to determine patterns.

T: Talk to teachers, social workers and caregivers to validate that there may be a challenge.

E: Engage with trusted resources like pediatricians. 

"It is free," Daymond says. Go to u.org/takenote to learn more.
