Media Advisory

SHERIDAN, Wy./EWORLDWIRE/March 31, 2014 --- Learning disabilities (LD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia education leader David Flink will deliver an inspirational presentation on his personal experience as a member of the 20 percent of the general population who live with disability labels.

As the only national leader of a national organization who has LD, Flink shares his journey - an intimate, compelling story of what it was like for him growing up, his own challenges in the school environment, and his achievements despite the odds. He lays the groundwork for parents who must travel their own journey when their child receives a diagnosis and what they can do to help improve their youth’s outcome.

For parents, educators and allies, Flink considers:

- What does it mean to be a "different thinker?"
- Where can we find the full potential of our community?
- How can we make strides toward creating a world in which every learner is recognized?

Flink offers tactical advice on how to secure accommodations and, through his thoughtful approach, others can see how success is an attainable goal for all learners. He will talk about the positive influences that lead the way for him to co-found Eye to Eye - a mentoring organization for children with labels based on an art-based curriculum which pairs students in college and high school with similarly labeled middle and elementary school students nationally in 62 chapters in 22 states to foster self esteem and increase the odds of success in school and life.

"Wyoming is the first state in the Eye to Eye coalition to help us all understand the role mentorship and teaching students about their strengths can play in empowering students with LD/ADHD as learners. The findings that support our belief that student academic performance increases when self-esteem and self-awareness increases within students as a result of mentorship are not surprising," said Flink. "We are honored to collaborate with the Wyoming Department of Education and are thrilled to be a part of what is certain to be the place our nation looks to for how best to reach all learners in our schools!"

A book Flink has authored, "Thinking Differently," is to be released August 26, 2014, by Harper Collins in the form of a guide to empower parents to help their kids be successful with learning disabilities. (View video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwUbTlJ4Gig).

"As someone who strongly believes we must recognize the strengths of a myriad of learners, I am delighted David will present to our community," said Michelle Sullivan, founder of the Center for Inspired Learning Environments (CenterILE) and trustee of the Homer A. and Mildred S. Scott Foundation. "The power of mentorship and the positive impact it can have in the lives of young people - both in and out of school - is widely recognized. Our ability to support all kinds of minds can only make Sheridan a richer place to live."

The presentation is sponsored by The Homer A. and Mildred S. Scott Foundation, Sheridan College and local school districts.

Wyoming chapters of Eye to Eye include:

Casper College (Casper, WY)
Central Wyoming College (Riverton, WY)
University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY)
Western Wyoming Community College (Rock Springs, WY)
* Jackson Hole, WY Chapter (Coming Fall 2014)

An additional upcoming presentation by Flink is scheduled during the Wyoming Department of Education's 8th Annual Leadership Symposium, June 23-26, 2014, Riverton, Wy.

ABOUT EYE TO EYE
With 62 chapters throughout the U.S., Eye to Eye is the only national mentoring movement that pairs kids labeled as "learning disabled" or LD / ADHD - or, as Co-Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer David Flink says, who "learn differently" - with similarly labeled college students as mentors. An art-based curriculum helps mentees build essential self-esteem, value their own unique minds, and inspires them to advocate for their needs in the classroom. The mentoring movement affects everyone involved, creating a new understanding of learning differences and raising expectations of those who carry that label.
