It’s critical for parents of neurodivergent kids to have intentional talks with them. It not only helps kids understand their learning disabilities, but also develop a positive self-image, gain a sense of ownership, master self-advocacy, and craft coping strategies. On June’s episode of “A World of Difference: Embracing Neurodiversity,” we meet the Palumbo family which has treated regular talks about learning differences as second nature since their son’s diagnosis. Our expert panel guides parents to age-appropriate language to use from kindergarten through college for affirming talks with their neurodivergent children. And we share the story of our latest “Difference Maker,” Lucas Boyce, an author, consultant, and motivational speaker who went from the low of entering foster care with developmental delays days after birth to the high of soaring across America in Air Force One as a valued presidential advisor.
