NJEA Exceptional Children Conference
Creating Learning Environments for ALL Students
Diagnosed with a learning disability in the third grade, LeDerick Horne defies all labels. He’s a dynamic spoken-word poet, a tireless advocate for all people with disabilities, an inspiring motivational speaker, and a bridge-builder between learners and leaders across the U.S. and around the world who serves as a role model for all races, genders, and generations.
In addition to students and educators, he regularly addresses an array of academic, government, social, and business groups, including appearances at the White House, the United Nations, Harvard University, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the National Association of State Directors of Special Education, and the departments of education in states across the nation.
