Divorce and Children's Learning Disabilities

Reading New York Divorce Report's Divorce: A Cause of Learning Disabilities? raises a lot of interesting questions. I cannot fault Mr. Clements' comments here:

There are practical explanations for the study’s findings. For instance, in the case of a single parent household, the custodial parent may be working and raising several children. This parent simply may not have the time to spend reading to the children or exposing them to new things. It is believed that early childhood exposure to new ideas and experiences fosters children’s learning skills.
Something for the legislature to think about is my major thought.
