Jonathan Mooney was always the slow kid in class. Called 'stupid' and 'lazy' most of his life, he believed that because he was different, he was deficient.

True that! My son's kindergarten teacher tried to smother my son's natural strengths. He spent most days in the hallway because she wanted him to conform to her idea of what he should be. She actually told me he didn't pay enough attention to knowing what she read to the class.

Thank you for your story! I am a teacher and your words have inspired me to double my efforts to help my students “find their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses”! So well said!

Inspirational! The job of every teacher is to ‘find those strengths’ in every child, and celebrate them.

20% of the population is dyslexic. It’s genetic. Most kids who act out can’t read. It’s a coping mechanism. It won’t change until our teachers learn how to teach students with language based learning disorders.

I hope every person in the world will listen to this and if you have a child diagnosed with any of these disability's have that child listen to this.

I've taught many students that were like this student and after they found their strengths they have excelled in life.

Responsible adults, parents, teachers and family members are strongly challenged to help bring out the best in every child’s life.
