October is Learning Disabilities (LD) Awareness Month, ADHD Awareness Month, & Dyslexia Awareness Month,

a time when the nation turns its attention to the one in five students who learn differently because they have dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or other specific learning disabilities.

Each person who learns differently possesses unique abilities, identities, and individual experiences that define who they are. The Eye to Eye community embraces and understands this intersectionality. After all, it’s a core premise of both our mission and vision towards a more inclusive and equitable society. As different learners and allies ourselves, we realize there is no single-issue struggle since we don’t live single-issue lives.

So this year, we are inviting you to share with us “What’s Your &” ?
