How can I have more empathy for my neurodiverse kid?

How can I have more empathy for my neurodiverse kid?

In the pursuit of helping our neurodiverse kids, those with dyslexia, we’ve recently discovered that people helping those with other neurodiversities like ADHD and autism spectrum disorder have a lot to offer. I met Cris Brady recently and she has an incredible message for parents of neurodiverse kids.

20% of students have dyslexia, which is defined as someone with average or above average intelligence, who struggles to learn due to a language based learning disability. This population is falling through the cracks. Without the proper help, outcomes for these students are poor, including over-representation in statistics for drug & alcohol abuse, law enforcement interactions, prison, minimum wage, and unemployment, failure to go to college, and more.

With the proper help, not only do these students avoid the poor outcomes, but they are over-represented among the ranks of people who contribute greatly to society. Over 50% of NASA employees have dyslexia and they are sought after for their superb problem solving skills, and excellent 3D and spacial awareness. Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and Leonardo da Vinci are among their ranks. They’re over-represented as CEOs, entrepreneurs, actors, and more. Over 60% of self-made millionaires have dyslexia.
