The Arizona Department of Education/Exceptional Student Services, in collaboration with Raising Special Kids, is pleased to announce an opportunity to hear Jonathan Mooney, a dynamic international speaker, who will share his experience of “falling outside of the norm.” He will discuss the need to have a strengths-based perspective on how people learn – students, family members, general and special educators, and community members will be moved by his message!
Mr. Mooney is a writer and learning activist with dyslexia who did not learn to read until he was 12 years old. He is a graduate of Brown University and holds an honors degree in English Literature. He is cofounder of Project Eye-To-Eye, a widely duplicated mentoring program for students with disabilities. Mr. Mooney was also a winner of the prestigious Harry S. Truman Scholarship for public service and was selected as a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarships.
