Normal Isn't Real is a new documentary film featuring four successful young adults sharing their stories of meeting the challenges of their LD and ADHD issues. These candid portraits take the viewer into the subjects' daily lives, showcasing their talents, venting their frustrations, and employing strategies to manage their challenges and utilize their strengths.
The "experts" in the film are the subjects themselves. Told in their own words, and in the words of those who know them well, their stories affirm the research that there is no "one size fits all" formula for success. The challenges of navigating learning disabilities and ADHD are considerable, but so are the talents and capabilities of people with these challenges.
Middle and high school students are welcomed with a parent, guardian, or teacher. Must be registered to attend.
