Bryan Mark Rigg | Conquering Learning DisabilitiesTue 10/25/2022
In honor of ADHD Awareness Month, Alper JCC Miami presents Bryan Mark Rigg and his book Conquering Learning Disabilities at Any Age: How an ADHD/LD Kid Graduated from Yale and Cambridge and Became a Marine Officer, Military Historian, Financial Advisor, and Caring Father. With his gifts for academic research and storytelling, Riggs shares his story of triumphing over adversity. As a child, Bryan was a tornado who couldn’t speak intelligibly or control his temper. Today, he speaks two languages, earned a Ph.D., 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.
In partnership with Alper JCC Miami's Tikvah and Inclusion Programs and Chabad Pinecrest/Kendall Friendship Circle
