What Makes Your Child Exceptional?
HBO is producing a TV special on learning differences, by young people, for young people, that will discuss learning disabilities from the vantage point of these children's strengths. It will be a non-traditional showcase for their talents and a celebration of their strengths, gifts and perspectives on learning as a way to inspire other young people - and also to challenge the myths about learning disabilities.
Who Are They Looking For?
The producer is looking for bright, expressive children between 8 and 16 years old who can articulate their experiences and the process of discovering their own voice, and can talk about their own talents and strengths .
