Standup LD believes in hosting events that empowers and helps students build community, self-confidence and leadership. To kick off the 2018-2019 school year, the first event of the season is Stand Up For Your Superpowers. This is a free, fun, and action-packed event for students ages 6-12 with dyslexia, ADHD & related learning & attention differences. The likeminded students will spend the afternoon together in a healthy, safe and supportive environment to help them realize that they are not alone. Because empowering students who have learning differences is the cornerstone of StandUp LD, every participant will create their own superhero item, an item that represents their own superpowers. Then the students will have an opportunity to talk about their superhero item and how that item helps exemplify their real life super powers and accommodate their real-life challenges. 

Cost:

The event is free of charge and is limited to 50 participants. Registration is required. To register go to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/stand-up-for-your-superpowers-tickets-48991095686?aff=StandUPLDWEBSITE.
