Eye-to-Eye is a national program that matches high school and college students with learning disabilities (mentors) with elementary, middle, and high school students with learning disabilities in mentor-mentee relationships. Its purpose is for the mentees to gain skills and have a greater understanding of their learning differences; mentees will have increased self-advocacy, increased meta-cognitive skills, and increased understanding and use of asset-based learning strategies. These increases in skills and understanding will in turn improve student outcomes such as achievement.
