Got a wonderful thank you note as well as some very nice little gifts for teaching a class session of Cornell's ILR College first Neurodiversity course. With receiving thank you notes from Ivy league colleges being a new experience, I thought I would share a picture of the card.
Feedback has been tremendous. What really blows me away is the longterm effect this one class session will have. The students will be taking a new perspective on Neurodiversity to the companies that hire them. But, the teaching assistants and professor are now armed with a refined view of neurodiversity from the viewpoint of the neurodiverse.
When I started down this path almost 3 years ago, I didn't see teaching a class at Cornell. That is the amazing part of heading in new directions. It always seems the things that drew you in and got you going are only a tiny part of all it can be. The opportunities which appear are impossible to see before they happen.
Make that new commitment and work on it regularly. I like to say "Do a little bit every day." After all, it is not how fast your run, high you jump, or loud you talk. It is doing those seemingly small tasks day after day and the miracle eventually shows up!
