Presentation on Eye to Eye open to public

A presentation on Eye to Eye, a program that pairs children with learning disorders with high school and college mentors, is open to the public.

Central Wyoming College's Foundation of Special Education class is hosting Spencer West, a University of Wyoming psychology major who is the student coordinator of the UW Eye to Eye chapter at 2:30 p.m., April 3 in the Health and Science Auditorium (HS100).

Eye to Eye is a national movement that matches learning-disabled children with high school and college-aged students who have been similarly labeled. While growing up in Green River, West recognized he was a different kind of thinker. In the eleventh grade he was diagnosed with dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Using an arts-based curriculum, the mentors help children they are paired with to understand their unique ways of learning and thinking to build self esteem and skills.

Consistent with its mission to value diversity and to treat all individuals with dignity and respect, Central Wyoming College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, religion, or disability in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in its educational program services or activities. The college makes reasonable accommodations to serve students with special needs and offers services to students who have the ability to benefit.
