Event Details

Presented by Brandon Slade, Founder and President of Untapped Learning.


Mr. Slade struggled with academics throughout high school, but it wasn’t until college that he recognized that his brain did not work like those of his peers. After receiving an ADHD diagnosis, Brandon’s goal has been to better understand how the ADHD brain works. After teaching special education for 12 years, he started Untapped Learning. Untapped’s mission is to help students with executive function challenges—specifically ADHD and dyslexia.


When students struggle with executive function skills such as organization, time management, and planning, they’re more likely to have late or missing assignments and procrastinate on long-term papers and projects. They may seem unmotivated or constantly frustrated by school. Students with executive function challenges are often victims of misconception when people perceive their lack of focus as laziness or disinterest. However, executive function skills don’t occur naturally—they’re learned. Teaching the skills these students lack helps them to succeed not just academically but in all areas of their lives. Through repetition, routine, self-advocacy, and staying active, students can thrive.


While this presentation will focus on skills and tactics for 5th-high school age students, parents of students of all ages are welcome to attend. This event is open to the public.
