The 12 day tour is aimed at driving attention to the misconceptions surrounding learning disabilities ADHD and dyslexia.
Congratulations to the folks at Eye to Eye! this tour sounds like a winning strategy to educate the community!--Lou
The Tour, conceptualized and brought to fruition by 5 college students living with the labels of learning disabled, ADHD or dyslexic, is a physical manifestation of a movement that is doing more than lifting their spirits.
The 12-day, nearly 3,200 mile trip is aimed at driving attention, literally, to the misconceptions surrounding learning disabilities, ADHD and dyslexia, and to transform the public conversation - "strike out the stigma" - of the labels, and to empower others.
There are nine key stops along the route:
