LGS students Gregory Quinlan ‘13 and Angela Allegretti ‘11 are currently conducting an initiative that will advocate for learning disability awareness. The initiative is designed to inform the Adelphi Community—Adelphi’s present education majors in particular—on the range of learning disabilities from dyslexia to autism. In addition to educating the community about various forms of learning disabilities, the initiative aims to convey the stereotypes and social injustices experienced by people with learning disabilities within their community, schools and workplaces. People with learning disabilities are constantly inflicted with social prejudices, something that is often overlooked by the mainstream media and society. This initiative hopes to give the Adelphi Community an understanding of dyslexia and the constant struggle people with this disability face.
