We realize that health does play a significant part in a child's ability to learn. Therefore, we decided to include some health web sites which may provide some interesting reading, especially to those of you who are new to the Internet. Please realize that we do not endorse any of the web sites we mention nor are we connected with them in any way. You should always consult with your physician when you have questions or concerns about your child's health problems.
