Understood.org is an online platform developed by 15 nonprofit organisations, including Poses Family Foundation, Oak Foundation USA, Benetech and the National Center for Learning Disabilities. The platform has been developed to help parents of children aged 3-20 with learning and attention issues. The platform was developed through extensive research with more than 2,200 parents, who described the kinds of tools they needed to help them navigate everyday challenges. The platform’s aim is to help parents make more effective choices that propel their children from simply coping to truly thriving.
The result is an innovative digital resource with thousands of articles, “deep dives”, decision guides, quizzes, slideshows, tips and more. This gives parents a direct path to the support they need most to make them feel more confident and capable, less frustrated and alone.
