Speak for Ourselves
For Charlotte Yamamoto’s project, she collaborated with SEPAC and the Medford Public School’s special education division to run the Speak for Ourselves program. The program consisted of student-run recurring Zoom meetings focused on making connections among neurodivergent students (students with neurodevelopmental disorders like ADHD, autism, Tourette’s, dyslexia, etc.) in grades 6-12. Students who joined the meetings talked about their interests, challenges they have faced because of their disorder, and learned more about each other. The goals of this project were to form friendships among the students and to discuss similar experiences with these disorders and solutions to similar problems they face.
