What people should know about my disability

My disability makes me who I am; it makes me stronger and allows me to help others who aren’t as quite as comfortable as I am with my ADHD. ODS has showed me that I am not alone, and I plan to show others they aren’t alone either.

Advice for students with similar disabilities

You’re not alone. There are more people with the same disability as you than you think. Control it, don’t let it control you.

Advice for new MU students

You’re not alone. There are more people with the same disability as you than you think. Control it, don’t let it control you.

How the Office of Disability Services makes a difference

ODS gives me the environment I need to succeed. I have to work twice as hard as others who do not have ADHD, and having ODS, it makes it that much easier.
