The Updated Friends of Quinn
I am writing this blog to let my followers know that I have updated my website, Friends Of Quinn, because it has been 10 years since it launched, which I can’t believe. When you have a website, you need to keep it updated with the times. To quote Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast…if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” The other reason why I am updating the site is because I’m turning 40 years old on April 29, which I also can’t believe. I want to use my experiences to talk to not only young adults with learning differences, but adults and parents as well.
The updated website has a comprehensive resource guide with articles and links for Parents, Teens and Adults. These include how to tell if a child has a Learning Disability (which I prefer to call a Learning Difference), where to get a diagnosis, how to tackle self-esteem issues, how to handle problems in school, how to manage stress in social settings — and even tips on dating! Our video library may be our most inspiring resource. There are interviews that I have conducted with celebrities including Steven Spielberg, Sir Richard Branson, Whoopi Goldberg and Michael Douglas, about their problems dealing with their own learning issues and those of their children.
