I just wanted to give you an update on what I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks. Last week, I did my presentation for the independent study exhibition where I talked about this study as well as another one I did over the summer. Now, I’m working on my booklet! Last week and over the weekend, I worked on creating illustrations about ADHD (some of which you can see here). Although ADHD is not technically a learning disability, it connects with my exploration of learning disabilities, and I think it’s a very relevant and important topic in schools since so many students are diagnosed with it (about 1 in 10).
Looking ahead, I’m now going to be putting all of my illustrations together into my booklet. I have a lot of illustrations to work with, so I’ll be getting everything I’ve done so far organized so I can see if I need to create any more drawings to fill in any gaps. I will also need to write some explanations to go along with my illustrations so that they’re super clear to even those who know nothing about neurobiology.
I’m really excited to put everything together and see my project develop! I’ll continue to post updates along the way!
