LEAD School Program

When students with learning disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) gain knowledge about how their brain works, they develop skills to advocate for themselves and their peers, and they find success in academics and life. Developed by founder Alan Pocock and Stan Lambros at Cheyenne Mountain High School, our 20th class graduated in 2018.  

 

We support the LEAD Class, a public school program, with these goals:

Student Development

Develop students LEADers though creating an understanding of their LD and ADD/ADHD, their rights and how to self-advocate in an academic setting.

Weekly Support Groups

Offer weekly support group sessions to help LEADers cope with the emotional and stressful realities of being a teenager with learning and attention difficulties.

Student Mentorship

Develop future LEADers through upper-class LEAD students mentoring elementary students.

Peer Education

LEADers give presentations on what their experiences have been like in school and how they found power through LEAD at local and national conferences for students, parents, educators and educational leaders.
