Many highly successful people are challenged by learning differences. This program is a collection of stories meant to inspire and encourage all learners. Some of the people profiled are famous. Others are young achievers who have already achieved great success in variety of fields. For those with LD, the stories show that having difficulties in school doesn't mean they're stupid and that they can focus on their strengths to make important contributions to society. For those who don't have LD, the stories will help them understand what it is like to have LD and that people with LD can go far in life.
