Dear Teachers, Here's What Kids Who Learn Differently Want You to Know


Kids who learn differently and think differently have something to say to their teachers in a video created by Brain Highways, an educational program based on neuroplasticity — the concept that the brain has the ability to reorganize itself and change.

I know it doesn’t always seem like it,” says a young boy in the video below, “but I really do want to listen and learn.”

A young girl continues, “It’s just my brain is kind of different.”

Brain Highways offers programs for people with a whole range of disabilities and learning differences, including ADHD, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, depression and dyslexia. Programs are for families, teachers and even adults interested in learning how the brain can change.

In this adorable video, Brain Highway kids tell their teachers what they want them to know and how they can use that knowledge to help them learn.
