I have multiple learning disabilities! Hi 👋 name is Amy, I am 28 years old and I'm the owner of dis❌ABILITY.
Early on in my career I had the opportunity to wear several different hats and work in various roles around special education and family services. I have 10 years of experience in teaching special education (autism), behavior management, family engagement, crisis prevention and family intervention
In addition, I also have sat on the board for a Mental Health Advisory Council, I am a member of the National Allience for Mental Illness (NAMI), and the Learning Disabilities Association of America, and I am a member of three different national honor societies. I also have several learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, executive functioning delay and Attention Deficit Disorder.
It's important to follow the professional accomplishments with my personal reality. Because if you ask me what the number one thing that has contributed to my success in my career, school, and in my personal relationships, it's my ability and determination to overcome the biggest challenge of my life; my learning disabilities.
📖 I tell my story to people to let them know they are not alone. I too struggled with the same feelings you may be feeling, but can't express.
💡I'm here to bring some light to you on your journey and tell you, that you too can overcome your challenges and adversities. You can overcome your daily struggles, and you will succeed. How do I know this? Because I did!
1. First you have to understand that if something isn't challenging you then it isn't changing you.
2. You must be willing to step out of your comfort zone and reach for something more. You can't experience pride unless your willing to be uncomfortable. Everything that I am proud of in life, didn't come easy to me, I had to work hard for it. I had to grind day in and day out. 💡
3. Through the frustrations, and confusion and long hours. I had to learn to love myself first before anyone else, I had to begin advocating for myself and knowing my strengths and build on them.
4. I had to shut out every person in society and people in my life that told me I wouldn't go this far and that my life had limits or that I wasn't smart enough.
5. I had to stop being complacent and believe in myself. And one day I had to come to the conclusion and believe in my heart that I am made for more.
AND SO ARE YOU 🤟❤️ I'm advocating for you!
