Wired Differently Keynote Speaker David Rendall puts a positive spin on the paradox of students who are wired differently: 

What makes us weird also makes us wonderful.
What makes us weak also makes us strong.

Watch David Rendall describe how his “academic weaknesses” turned out to be his greatest strengths.

Rendall will deliver a keynote session entitled The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness at the Wired Differently Conference in Atlanta.  His plenary session is entitled Funny for a Change: Using Humor to Create Serious Transformation.

Now in its 5th year, the Wired Differently Conference is an information-packed event that showcases a wide array of best practices for reaching and teaching students with emotional and behavioral challenges — especially in inclusive settings.  REGISTER NOW!
