Learning Disabilities and self esteem

I have a niece, aged 12. She has been diagnosed with a learning disability, specifically an auditory processes sing deficit and conceptualization problems. She goes to school and is not a behavior problem (thank god), but I see that she does not think she is very good at anything. I want to help. Anything I can do? I am NOT her mom, so it makes it hard. But still, I want to do something.

Since you are not a parent, maybe you can suggest things to your sister or brother?

This is the USA's big organization on LD and self esteem, they have some good ideas.
