WHY SEE THIS FILM?
The primary goal of this film is to help young people struggling with ADHD and LD reach their full potential. Their odds for success increase dramatically when they have the support of their parents, teachers and community members. Some ways in which these stories can increase those odds:
- Change how the public, families, teachers, employers, and often the people with LD and ADHD themselves, view these issues. Shift the focus away from the deficits and focus on creative ways to access strengths.
- Stimulate new ways of thinking about careers and the future by identifying strengths and strategies for managing LD and ADHD issues.
- Motivate people with LD and ADHD to persevere in their efforts to develop skills and strategies leading to success.
- Inspire hope in people with LD and ADHD- and around them- that their lives can be full and rewarding.
