Creator & Founder
As an Inclusive Education Strategist my goal at special compass is to put a face to Learning Disabilities. I, like many of the students that we work with, went through a period of time where school made me anxious, nervous, frustrated and fearful. I could not grasp many of the concepts that other students seemed to pick up quickly – but, I had no clue as to why. What’s wrong with me? Why is everyone else so smart and I seem to be so stupid? These were the questions that floated through my mind day in and day out. Turning inwards, I began to judge myself. Weighing on my spirits, I sunk deeper into a feeling of hopelessness and eventually found it difficult to connect with others.

Thank you for running this workshop.
It's really motivate and helpful for me.
Run more of it in the future.
I would love to attend again with some friends who's children could also benefit for the workshop.
This was a great seminar!
I learned parents that are in denial need to get out of the mindset and start to advocate for the children immediately.
I loved seeing the different ways of learning, open my eyes to great options.
Great job Shakira
