Do IEP’s Really Work?

The thing about IEP’s and other programs meant for developing the learning skills of children with learning disabilities, is that there are few and they are underdeveloped. Through recently speaking with one of peers that was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age, I have come to better understand what it is like growing up with trouble learning rather than […]

How common is it?

Back again with the topic of learning disabilities, this time to talk about how communities can help people with LDs.

What Can We Do?

Terms like ‘race’, ‘gender’, and ‘religion’ have become increasingly controversial terms. With campaigns like ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Gender Equality’, many of these issues have come to higher light and are making progress in support. More recently–within the last year–there have been several accounts of peaceful protests, all following the lead of Colin Kaepernick, a former quarterback for the NFL […]
