2014-2015 Activity Calendar
- The Gift: LD/ADHD Reframed, April 23, 9am-12pm, Medford Library's Large Meeting Room
The Diversity Programming Board at RCC is hosting an exciting conference called The Gift: LD/ADHD Reframed on Thursday, April 23 from 9:00am – 12:00pm, at the Medford Library's Large Meeting Room. Key goals will be to empower students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disabilities (LD) issues to self-advocate, and to inspire their families, peers, and teachers to become partners in the students' educational journey.
The keynote speaker will be Jonathan Mooney, a writer and activist who because of his learning disabilities and ADHD did not learn to read until he was 12 years old. Today, he is a graduate of Brown University and holds an honors degree in English Literature. With the publication of Learning Outside the Lines, Mooney established himself as one of the foremost leaders in LD/ADHD, disabilities, and alternative education. Jonathan and an RCC student panel will help conference attendees better relate to the problems and opportunities associated with LD/ADHD, and challenge participants to consider a progressive view of learning and intelligence.
The program will be enlightening for students, faculty, and staff. Given that so many students have these concerns, we urge RCC faculty members to come and to encourage their students to attend. Seating will be limited to the first 200. For more info, contact Andrew Childress, Ext. 7692.
