Living Above Disorder was founded in 2010 by Frederica McLean. Its purpose is to educate individuals and families while providing integration between interventions, educational plans, relationships and the future. Through this integration, the home-school connection has flourished. Implementation of this purpose has allowed us to provide professional development to educators so that they are better able to  fully understand the impact of  the family on the classroom, create optimal learning environments for their students, and develop instructional plans that will address the gaps that arise in their classroom. In 2012, Living Above Disorder expanded to begin providing personal development and leadership training to diverse industries and organizations. Through the creation of the "Find your Stone"Integrative Leadership Program, Living Above Disorder gone deeper; helping individuals address the need to reconnect with internal values and purpose which drive performance, interrelationship skills and leadership capacity. Through connections with professionals and experts in different industries and with diverse backgrounds, L.A.D will continue to grow as a resource; shifting perspectives in the organizations and individuals we encounter for increased performance and value.




"A leader is best defined as an individual who is driven by and connected to the purpose that they have been given to fulfill. Because of this they are able to inspire others to greatness."
