How the school system is treating our children just isn't right!

WHY IT MATTERS

OUR GOALS

Research and studies show that students with learning disabilities:

  • can be misidentified as a "problem child" and overlooked for required psychological evaluations, research based interventions, or mental health assistance

  • have misunderstood behavior issues that lead to improper punishments, excessive suspensions, or placement in alternative schools

  • are three times more likely to drop out of school without any means of support or plans for the future

  • have fewer personal relationships with peers

  • are less likely to attend college

  • are less likely to be employed, According to the Florida Chamber Foundation 62.9 percent of persons with disabilities are not in the labor force.

  • are more likely to be involved in crime​, β€‹In U.S. jails 49% of females and 39% of males reported having a disability. The disability types included the following hearing, vision, cognitive, ambulatory, self-care, and independent living which refers to the ability to navigate daily life schedules, activities, and events without assistance.”
