Here’s what some of last year’s attendees had to say about their experience at the Academy:
“The academy has helped me realize that my voice and opinion matter and that I shouldn’t be afraid to share it. I know that I am strong, resilient, and a self-leader. I’ve made so many friends who helped to teach me these things as well.”
“I understand so much more about the brain and how it works, as well as Tourette’s. I acquired new skills that will help me through my life, like organizing myself and how to advocate.”
“This was the safest and most accepting place I have ever been in. We got to know each other well enough that we were able to safely and respectfully joke with one another.”
