About this event

When more than 20% of young people today are neurodiverse, how can parents and educators best support and maximize the strengths of these "differently wired" children?

On Wednesday, March 29th from 7:00-8:00pm, parenting activist and podcaster Debbie Reber joins SPEAK in person at The San Francisco School to share her insights on the challenges neurodiverse and twice exceptional kids face in and out of school. Reber, founder of Tilt Parenting and author of Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World, will also highlight strategies to positively shift the way these children are seen, understood and supported.

Debbie Reber, MA is a parenting activist, bestselling author, speaker, and the CEO and founder of Tilt Parenting, a resource, top-performing podcast, consultancy, and community with a focus on shifting the paradigm for parents raising and embracing neurodivergent children. Her most recent book, Differently Wired: A Parent’s Guide to Raising an Atypical Child with Confidence and Hope, came out in June 2018. After living abroad in the Netherlands for five years, Debbie, her husband, and differently wired teen moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2019.
