Join us as John Elder Robison describes how the differences of autism and ADHD, considered a disability as children, can confer powerful competitive advantages upon us as adults. Through poignant examples from his own life, Robison shows how traits that limited him as a child actually facilitated some of his greatest accomplishments as an adult. He shares a new way to look at disability, difference, and giftedness, and offers a different paradigm for educators, parents, and neuro-diverse people. Anyone who is personally affected by autism, Asperger’s, or ADHD will find this talk illuminating and inspiring.
