Neuro-diverse NOT Neuro-deficit with Angie DeMarco
Our society has been the fortunate recipient of incredible achievements that have been shared by the neurology of non-typical thinkers who are said to carry the identification known as a "learning disability". In reality, the differences speak to a natural, long standing, human variation; a different way of processing information, a different way of thinking.
Please join Angie DeMarco as she explores many facets of this learning difference, while workshop participants will come to treasure that their child's unique neurodiversity is at the beginning of their child's many amazing future accomplishments.
