Who We Are

Our Story and Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the educational experience and outcomes of every student who learns differently, including those with specific learning disabilities (LD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or other similar challenges related to learning.

Our Vision

Eye to Eye envisions a world where every person with a learning difference – regardless of age, race, or socio-economic background – is fully included in all aspects of society and valued for their abilities as different learners.

1 Why We're Here

In the United States, 1 in 5 students learn differently. This includes those with ADHD and specific learning disabilities like dyslexia and other challenges related to learning.

Resources

2 Different not Deficient

Despite having average to above average intelligence, without proper support students who learn differently perform well below their peers in core academic proficiency resulting in lower retention, increased disciplinary actions, eventual dropout. Educators often struggle with a lack of resources (and support) to adequately meet the needs of students who learn differently, while unknowingly perpetuating harmful attitudes, misconceptions, beliefs, and practices.

3 A Student-Centered Solution

While the problem seems overwhelming, there is a simple solution. When we empower students and their teachers to develop robust social and emotional skills, create supportive environments, and cultivate advocacy and leadership skills, we provide a path out of stigma and self-doubt.
