ECU helps learning disabled succeed

“I’ve been called stupid. I’ve been called retarded, the whole nine yards. I’m not stupid. It took me 12 years to figure that out, but I finally did.”

In East Carolina University’s sea of purple and gold shirts, Lee Olson stands out. The letters printed across the front of her T-shirt are not ECU. They are LD and ADHD.

There was a time when Olson hated the labels. The Washington, D.C., native would not even tell friends about her dyslexia, much less reveal it in public. In denial about her learning disability, Olson despised being called out of class for special education services. She wept when she met to discuss her progress with school counselors.


“I didn’t have faith in myself,” Olson said. “I didn’t think that I would be able to go to college or graduate from high school even.”
