About Bright & Quirky:
Bright & Quirky is routinely called a "lifeline" for families raising bright kids with learning, social and emotional challenges. We're an online psychoeducation company helping thousands of bright families, with ADHD, anxiety, learning differences like dyslexia and/or on the autistic spectrum, live their happiest, most productive lives. We do this through a variety of online programs:
The Bright & Quirky IdeaLab
In the IdeaLab, our parent membership community, we serve over a thousand families through weekly events, focusing on content, coaching and community support. It can be very difficult to find information for kids who are twice exceptional, having both advanced skills and lagging skills at the same time. We provide masterclasses, Q&A and coaching with the top psychologists and educators on a weekly basis. We empower parents to be their child’s best advocate in traditional systems that were not created with bright and quirky kids in mind. We help uniquely wired kids soar with their strengths and get support for their struggles.
The Bright & Quirky Summits
We also provide the annual Bright & Quirky Child Online Summit which typically attracts over 25,000 attendees from over 150 countries each year. We feature the top experts in bright kids with challenges including emotional regulation, stress, anxiety, challenging behaviors, focus, executive function, social interaction, sensory processing, problematic internet use and more.
The Bright & Quirky Possibility Plan
The Possibility Plan is our signature 7-step digital course in which parents learn the science-backed Bright & Quirky method to help their bright kids thrive beyond learning, social, emotional and/or behavioral challenges. The Plan is available to parents in the IdeaLab.
The Bright & Quirky Video Library
Bright & Quirky provides the most comprehensive expert video library on the internet for issues related to neurodivergence and twice exceptionality. The video library includes search functionality to search within the content of each video so that parents, educators and caregivers can easily and quickly find the information they need. The video library is accessible with a membership in the IdeaLab.
Weekly Expert Tips
Bright & Quirky publishes weekly video tips featuring our many esteemed experts in bright and quirky kids so parents can get quick, practical pearls of wisdom they can put into practice immediately at home and at school.
Bright & Quirky was founded by licensed marriage and family therapist Debbie Steinberg Kuntz, LMFT. She honed her specialty in bright and quirky kids and families over a decade in private practice near Seattle, working with families employed by the area’s high tech firms such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google. She received her BA from Middlebury College and Masters in family counseling from Antioch University. She created Bright & Quirky to be the resource she was searching and hoping for on her own family’s bright and quirky journey.
