Finding courage to not hide who you truly are can be a challenge in today’s society, especially as a kid. But what do you do when you’re an adult whose grown up with a learning disability? You become a Hollywood Director, actor and advocate for the learning disabled! I came across Aaron Wolf on my instagram account and learned that he was embarking on a new endeavor to bring to light how we are all disabled in some way. I sent him my story on how 2 of my 6 children are learning disabled and their challenges in school. After reading our story, he invited me to share our story in his new project, “We Are All (dis)abled.” This is becoming a movement to bring to light how we all are in one way or another “disabled,” and as Aaron put’s it, “we need to look beyond one’s disability and see their abilities.” And he doesn’t just talk the talk, but he has walked in the shoes of one with a learning disability, so he knows first hand the struggles a person with a LD faces. He’s an inspiration to so many, especially my son George who was diagnosed with auditory processing and has been faced with challenges his whole life, but has risen above the nay sayers and is proving them wrong. I encourage you to check out Aaron’s sight at www.howlingwolfproductions.com where he has numerous projects on the burners! His compassion for others comes through his art of movie making and I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to share our story with such a remarkable man and talented artist, director, actor and writer! Please check out his website and check out my children’s story on werealldisabled.com how my own children are dealing with their disabilities and what we as parents did to support them in the best way we knew how.
