When I was six, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and an auditory processing difference. Morrissey-Compton was really there for me and helped me to overcome my fear of being different or thinking differently from others. I've had to learn to advocate for myself and I am so proud to have had their support. I don't think I would have been the person I am today with them. They have kept in touch all throughout elementary school through college.
Thanks so much M-C!
My name is Aaron and I am a senior in high school with executive function (EF) difficulties. I realized that there is no platform for students with executive functioning difficulties to CONNECT with one another and to EMPOWER each other. Therefore, I came up with the idea for the project, "Share Your Story." We would like to invite students (of any age) to share their experiences about having executive function challenges. This can be in the form of a video, written or typed responses to the questions given, a story, a photograph, a poem, or a drawing. Entries will be posted publicly on the Morrissey-Compton website for others to view.
