Learning Differences

"I Can't Do This But I CAN Do That: A Film For Families About Learning Differences"
HBO is featuring a film for families about students with learning differences. I was watching Stuart Little 2 today, and when it went off, I saw the trailer for this and thought it seemed like an excellent idea for a documentary. It features kids from across America who, at one point or another, felt like they could not do something. Some of them were made to feel this way. All of these kids and their families overcame learning differences by learning what they could do and focusing on the positive instead of letting their difficulty hold them back. I do not like the term "learning disability", because most of the time, kids are not "disabled"; their brain just works a little differently. I liked that HBO used the term "learning differences" in the title. Their learning process may take a different approach, but these kids will learn the material.
Watch the trailer to see more about the documentary.
