Damon says that as a child, he was a great student until reading became more challenging. “Reading was very frustrating for me,” Damon says. “I felt doomed to be a failure.”

Damon says that once he was diagnosed with ADHD, he was able to recognize where his low self-esteem was coming from. With the help of new technology, he says he found a new love of reading.

“I’ve always read slowly, but OrCam Learn helps me enjoy reading,” says Damon, who is now an ADHD life coach.

Damon, along with Dr. Janet Gonzalez, Education Consultant and spokesperson for OrCam, join Dr. Phil on Monday’s episode to share how OrCam Learn can help students who struggle with reading and learning challenges like dyslexia or other reading difficulties.

“Students gain confidence and independence while using the innovative, handheld OrCam Learn that helps them read and learn more effectively,” Dr. Gonzalez says. “It puts the student in the driver’s seat of their educational journey, reducing the need for them to be more dependent on others.”
