Colorado College Student Talks Neurodiversity, Mentorship, and Advocacy
About 150 high school and college students with ADHD, dyslexia, and other neurodiversities are set to gather this week in Denver at a conference about mentorship, leadership, and advocacy.
The most helpful connection that I saw and that I found was when these middle schoolers would say, “Oh, I’m not smart. I can’t focus,” all these negatives. These mentors would come back and be like, “I felt the same way. And now I have a 4.0 or I am on the track team.”
