Documentary of Interest: I can't do this but I CAN do that

A recent HBO documentary takes a look at children with learning disabilities and their families. There are eight learning disabled children profiled in the documentary that have learned to use their strengths in order to overcome their challenges.

The film provides viewers with a better understanding of what challenges those labeled as learning disabled or differently abled learners face. As one of the children in the film states, "It's not a learning disability, its a learning difference. If people think you have a disorder, their expectations drop tremendously. I can do better than that."
