LEAD School Program
What is it?
“You learn what’s going on in your brain. You find out what doesn’t make you alone in the world. You learn the weakest part of yourself, but with that comes strength.”-Jamie Galvan
When students learn the science behind their learning disabilities and/or ADHD they become self advocates in school and in life.
Instead of desks, the LEAD classroom is tailored to students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD: bean bags, a couch and tables. It is also a safe haven for students to share how their days are going.
LEAD students help elementary kids understand their disabilities and how they can affect their educational experiences.
Our students are asked to to give presentations on what their experiences have been like in school and how LEAD has impacted them at local and national conferences for students, parents and educators.
