Welcome to the Bright & Quirky Hero Series, a series of vlogs celebrating the bright and quirky adults who set the example of neurodiverse flourishing. Share these inspiring videos with friends and family who need to hear these messages of hope and thriving.
We kick off the series with Jonathan Mooney, dyslexic author of Normal Sucks: How to Live, Learn and Thrive Outside the Lines, who wants you to know that your child is not the problem.
The problem is a myth in our culture that we should all be the same. The problem is how we define intelligence and who the “good kids” are.
According to Jonathan, what kids need to do is not fix themselves, but rather, to advocate for themselves. Be the person who challenges this myth on your child’s behalf. Fight for the right to be different.
Take a listen.
