Summer is here, and that means a well-deserved break from school for your child. But as your family enjoys the time off, be aware of the “summer slide.” That’s the one to three months of learning some kids lose over the summer. Understood and its founding partners are here to help. Every Wednesday at 12pm ET, we’re hosting an #LDchat discussion where parents like you can discuss summer learning and enter to win a free book.
