Straight from the minds and mouths of high school students at New Way Academy in Phoenix, a podcast featuring honest and courageous personal perspectives about navigating the school years with ADHD, autism, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia, anxiety disorders and other challenges.

Listen to the podcast to find out:

• How learning differences affect their experiences at school

• What types of support and accomodations help them succeed

• How learning differences affect relationships with parents and peers

New Way Academy is a private K-12 that specializes in working with students who are smart, motivated, curious and fun loving but struggle in traditional school settings. The podcast was recorded on campus with high school math teacher Katie Jillette as moderator.
