“Training Your Mind to Excel”
Growing up, I did not have any examples of what a person with a Learning Disability could achieve. There was no one that I could identify with to help provide guidance and assure me that there was nothing “wrong” with me. At school, I felt incredibly isolated and alone academically. I excelled in learning languages but sunk deep into confusion for subjects such as math and science. When I grew older and sought out specialized instructions, I vowed that my mission would be to educate others who, like me, needed resources and craved a sense of community. Special Compass is an informative, honest space where I will delve out my best advice, tools, personal stories and reflections for YOU!
It’s a destination that I wish someone had provided for me when I was feeling lost and always steps behind everyone else of my age group. This site strives to offer relatability and put a face to the Learning Disability experience.
As parents, teachers, educators and students, we often feel as if we are working alone but this website is designed to connect the dots so that we create conversations that matter. The goal is to support one another and create action steps that master the difficulties of living / working with a Learning Disability.
We are on this journey together! Welcome.
Children with learning disabilities growing up to be adults with learning disabilities. Sometimes we can forget that the challenges individuals experience extends beyond the classroom. Miss S Rouse, creator of Special Compass opens up about her learning challenges in and outside the classroom.
What words are in your vocabulary? Are you feeding positive and construcitve words to your mind. Our thoughts have a big impact on our emotions which dictates our actions. We need to learn to let go if we want to achieve success
Sometimes the most challenging step is the most important step we can make.
It is time we walk the talk. To create a society were diversity is truly reflected in all of us, it starts by fostering potential from young.
Not too many people know this part of the story..once upon a time I thought about dropping out... Thankfully I never gave up, because I had something to keep me going during tought times. What drives you?
Do you really know what a learning disability is? Most people can define learning and disability but together this compound word has a whole new meaning. One that may be difficult to understand until now.
Everyone is going to have their opinion and thoughts about you. But you do not have to accept their two cents. Beleive in you and the rest will be magic.
The rain does not last forever.
