Student Empowerment

 

We help students become self-advocates and transform them into lifelong learners.

Learning differently, whether because of a visual impairment or dyslexia, can be an isolating experience that impacts a child’s self-esteem. 

WE CREATE OPPORTUNITIES

We are empowering students with learning differences to recognize their strengths and weaknesses, to help them build confidence and to provide them with the tools to become strong self-advocates. Our programs grow and foster the skills students need to take control of their education.
