What We Do

Professional Learning for Educators

For over 25 years, Eye to Eye has served over 15,000 students in more than 1,000 schools across the United States. We’re excited to share what we’ve learned with you!

Our professional learning workshops and events are designed to empower educators and support staff working in K-12 schools to improve the educational experience and outcomes of students who learn differently, including those with Dyslexia, ADHD, and other disorders that impact learning such as processing disorders, autism spectrum disorder, and more.
