Flexibility Training Led to Different iz Good

We love acknowledging those that Get Involved with the Different iz Good movement and the Turning Views Foundation ~ And, this one’s a biggie! The slogan Different iz Good . . . Spread the Word may never have existed but for the comments of a fellow Chromsome 18 Mom. In 2008 we were discussing how our beautiful special needs kiddos do not like change and changes in their schedule or routine that cause things to seem different. Susan Moran commented that they really stress in their house that different is good and show it by changing furniture around often and other methods. My eyes, heart and soul wrapped around those words and with Susan’s permission I tucked it away to “incubate” until the timing was right! You are a beautiful rockin Mom Susan! Here’s an explanation straight from Susan herself –

“Different is Good is a comment that is spoken in our house about every other sentence. It started as flexibility training for my darling IM who does NOT like change in schedule, routine, activity, etc… We sing and dance and chant, different is good, who can handle it? Then, the idea morphed into all differences are good…different people, people with differences. Wow, it is really going somewhere.”
