Listen to Dr. Florance an expert on how exceptional highly visual children are seen as having learning difficulties

I have talked to Dr. Florance on several occasions, followed her work, and she has influenced my work.  I really recommend you listen to this interview with Angela Eaton – you will learn so much about people with exceptional visual skills.

We have all heard the term “Maverick Mind”  today we meet the woman who coined the phrase… wrote the book… uncovered the Maverick Mind.

Despite having others label her son, Whitney, deaf, autistic and mentally disabled, Dr. Florance refused to give up on him. With her expertise in brain science and speech pathology, she traced her son’s difficulties to his high level of visual thinking. Combined with a multi-disciplinary focus on speech, hearing, and psychology, she found the key to unlocking her “unreachable son.  Today, Whitney is symptom-free, a college graduate, and a professional engineer.

Through her experience with her son, Dr. Florance discovered what she calls the “Maverick Mind.” Today, Dr. Florance works with Mavericks all over the world through her Brain Engineering Labs, enhancing the lives of children and adults with symptoms of Autism Spectrum, ADD, PDD, and other disorders of communication, language, learning, and behavior.

Join Marianne Russo and co-host Angela Eaton, a mother of a “Maverick” daughter, to explore this enlightening and potentially paradigm-shifting discussion.
