Tell us about yourself!
When I was 5 years old, I was asked not to return to kindergarten. A psychologist told my parents I had “minimal brain dysfunction” and “would never go to college.” My mother got together with Elizabeth Friedus and started the Gateway School for me. I got my BA at 20 and now have two MAs and a PhD. I also have two grown kids. I’ve written a book about LD (Screwed Up Somehow but not Stupid: Life with a Learning Disability) and am working on my memoir (Twice as Weird: A Memoir about 2E).
What’s a fun fact about you?
I can juggle.
Why did you become a member of LDA?
I’m learning disabled, my older kid is also LD, I write about LD, and advocate for LD. How could I not join?
