WHY THIS WORK IS IMPORTANT TO ME
As a student with ADHD and a processing disorder, I struggled to learn in the standard classroom environment. I was able to excel, as a student, once I acknowledged and accepted my differences as a learner. Eye to Eye facilitates this acceptance and understanding of the culture of ADHD and learning disorders every day, and I love contributing to other learners' growth and understanding.
FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB
I love introducing people to Eye to Eye and witnessing their growth as individuals in the greater LD community.
