Book Club—A Discussion of David Flink’s Thinking Differently: An Inspiring Guide for Parents of Students with Learning Differences

Tuesday, December 4 at 6:00 pm at the Intermediate Campus

Bring a dish to share and join us for a conversation about David Flink’s book specifically written for parents of students with learning differences. This will be a great opportunity to get to know other May Center parents and share experiences. Please RSVP to patty@maycenter.org so that we can plan for the number of participants in the dialogue.

David Flink is the Co-Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of Eye to Eye, a non-profit mentoring movement for students with learning disabilities and ADHD. David graduated from Brown University earning Bachelor's Degrees with honors in Education and Psychology and continued on to Columbia University to earn his Master's in Disability Studies. David was diagnosed at a young age with ADHD and dyslexia. Although his parents and teachers frequently reassured him that college was in the cards, he would have found that message more actionable, and useful, if it had come from a peer, a person with a learning difference (LD). With that in mind, David co-founded Eye to Eye in 1998 while a student at Brown University. Eye to Eye, with over 50 chapters in over 20 states nationwide, is the only national mentoring movement that empowers young people with LD by giving them a mentor who shares that experience.
