  • My son painted this in acrylics. It is a picture of Wall-E the robot from the 2008 Pixar movie. He really related to that movie. We entered this in an art contest in San Francisco for kids with learning differences. He didn't win but they included it in their yearly calendar.

    My son has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dysgraphia, Sensory Integration Disorder, and is color blind. He is part of a teen group Student Advisors for Education that learn to advocate for themselves. Advocacy and focus on strengths and building confidence are important.

    We all have strengths and weaknesses, some more visible or invisible than others. We are "whole" because of our weaknesses as only through our weaknesses do we find our strengths.
