LEAD in Schools

Knowledge is power

When students with learning disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) gain knowledge about how their brain works they develop skills to advocate for themselves, for their peers, and find success in academics in life.

The LEAD Class originated at Cheyenne Mountain High School and was developed by founder Alan Pocock. With the help of generous grants the LEAD Foundation published the curriculum for this program and is running pilot tests in several area high school and middle schools for the 2016-2017 school year.

We anticipate having this curriculum and a replication-training program available for the 2017-2018. If you are interested in finding out how to bring LEAD to your school click here.

We support the LEAD Class, a public school program with these goals:

Develop students LEADers though creating an understanding their LD and ADD/ADHD, their rights and how to self-advocate in an academic setting
Offer weekly support group sessions to help LEADers cope with the emotional and stressful realities of being a teenager with learning and attention difficulties
Develop future LEADers through upper-class LEAD students mentoring elementary students
LEADer spearheaded presentations at conferences locally and across the nation where the students teach community members, students, parents, educators, educational leaders what their experience has been like in school and how they have found power through LEAD.

“Because of LEAD, I accepted myself. I am now competitive in all my classes, and I am going to college. Three years ago I would not have suspected to be where I am today.”

Caroline Fitzhugh, LEAD Scholarship Winner
