Be Who You Are

Be Who You Are

In this personal vlog, Susan talks about neurodiversity, “weirdness” and individuality. She explains how her thinking about “normal” has changed and broadened over the years, and also relates an anecdote about a situation where her daughter was quite comfortable with making a choice that worked for her, even though it might have seemed odd to some people.

In this video Susan mentions this TED Talk by Todd Rose, and the book Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls.

    Susan, I always enjoy your vlogs, but this one really resonated with me. I think of the Four Frames of the Kindergarten Document, particularly the one for Problem Solving and Innovating. If we want to teach and support kids in being innovative, do we also need to embrace more of this “weird?” I think your daughter was being quite innovative here, and I applaud her for that.

    The story really made me smile. I used to wear my swimming goggles while cutting onion when I was a first year student, for the first time completely away from people who could have taken over that awful activity (I hate cutting onion)!
