A World of Difference is a newsmagazine style show that celebrates and educates parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, employers, and more on how to navigate the journey of neurodiversity. This episode focuses on helping parents prepare their children for success once they return to in-person learning on campus following the COVID cocoon. It includes a feature on the Sleboda family and how COVID impacted their son’s academics, expert strategies for supporting children’s successful return to school, Q&As with parents, and a “Difference Makers” profile on Matt Morgan, a former WWE professional wrestler turned mayor of Longwood, Florida, who has wrestled ADD all his life. The show is produced by Beacon College in Leesburg, Florida, a nonprofit liberal arts school and America’s first accredited baccalaureate institution dedicated to educating primarily neurodiverse students.
