By utilizing the lived experiences of our community and elevating the voices of students, we are bringing a more equitable world to bear for people with learning differences.
Why We're Here
One out of five people has difficulties with learning and attention. However each year, millions of capable students who learn differently experience serious negative consequences to their academic and emotional wellbeing because they are not adequately supported. Together with our partner schools and districts, we equip students and young adults with the skills to advocate for what they need, enhancing confidence and expanding the diverse community of learners modeling strategies and support for each other.The Need Remains
