Event description

Description

  • Join the Kansas-Missouri Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (KS-MO IDA) and Churchill Center & School in a night of inspiration and hope at the FREE screening of Normal Isn't Real. Do you want to see a film where young people with LD and ADHD meet their challenges and reach their FULL potential? The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. Here is what people are saying about the film:

  • “.... I’ve never seen a film like this- with a powerful message without being preachy- and one that should be seen by everyone…” Adolescent Psychiatrist

  • I thoroughly enjoyed and was deeply touched by the messages of resilience, advocacy and profound ability.” - Pediatrician.

  • “Every educator, parent, or anyone who touches the lives of children, should see this film.” Educational Blogger.

  • "I wish I could have heard these people in the film talking about their challenges and their issues at an earlier age. I really struggled with fitting in, being heard, and finding my place in a really difficult school system, and I think a lot of people can really resonate with that as well." - High School student.

NORMAL ISN’T REAL: Succeeding with Learning Disabilities & ADHD features four successful young adults sharing their stories of coming to terms with their LD and ADHD issues. These candid portraits take the viewer into the subjects' daily lives; showcasing their talents, venting their frustrations, and employing the strategies they use to manage their challenges and utilize their strengths. They come from diverse backgrounds, and their journeys are as unique and varied as the careers they have developed. They have all become experts on themselves and what they need to succeed.
