Event Details

Description

Today, he speaks two languages, earned a PhD, served in the Israel Defense Forces and the U.S. Marine Corps, taught at the university level, worked on Wall Street, and built a successful financial services firm. All from a boy who couldn’t read or write until he was eight! His journey is a blueprint for creating a life that works with neurological differences, and not against them.
