David Flink Presents at Forman
Posted 04/27/2018 11:22AM

To kick off Spring Parents' Weekend, parents, faculty, and administration gathered in the Jake Cloobeck '16 Theater to listen to noted author and education expert David Flink, the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of Eye to Eye, the only national mentoring program for and by people with LD/ADHD. Flink was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD when he was nine. 

Flink is the author of, Thinking Differently, in which he offers new strategies for teaching, parenting, and supporting kids with learning and attention issues. Flink has a master's degree in disability studies in education from Columbia University and bachelor's degrees with honors in education and psychology from Brown University. 

In his remarks to the Forman community, Flink shared stories from his book and offered guidance on supporting children with LDs. Says Flink "Persistence is the story of our kind of people. We have to overachieve to change the world." Flink also offered a piece of evergreen advice for anyone who has, or loves someone who has, an LD: "The best path to equal status is to tell your story."

After the presentation, Flink signed copies of his book, Thinking Differently, to all parents who attended.
