For this month’s Visual Playlist, I found some great videos that allow people who are living and thriving with learning and attention issues to tell their stories in their own words.
If you have only a few minutes to spare, check out the first three videos here. They are short and great. The last two are a little longer, but well worth your time.
Enjoy the playlist and don't forget to let me know what you think in the blog comments.
