We’re beyond thrilled to announce a new partner on our Read Me Differently Initiative: Eye to Eye, a national network of youth mentoring programs run by and for those with learning disabilities!

“Having worked with thousands of young people with learning disabilities and ADHD, the story of Sarah’s family is one that is so familiar; the unique gifts and challenges associated with being a different thinker is passed down across generations. I truly enjoyed watching this film, and I know others in the learning disabilities and ADHD community will as well.”
Marcus Soutra, COO of Eye to Eye

Through this partnership, Eye to Eye will reach out to its 57 chapters, servicing 65 elementary and middle schools with copies of Read Me Differently and its forthcoming viewing guide, as well as provide access to the film for families at a discounted rate.

The Read Me Differently Initiative aims to increase dialogue and understanding around LD, at home and in the community, through key partnerships with leading organizations in the field.

“Eye to Eye is a fantastic organization that is committed to empowering students of all ages to fully accept and come to terms with their LD/ADHD experience,” said Sarah Entine, MSW, director of Read Me Differently. “Their innovative approach to mentoring makes them an especially exciting partner.”
