1 in 5 people in the UK are disabled 90% of people with a learning disability have experienced bullying and harassment, 2 in 3 people with a learning disability have been bullied regularly, and 1 in 3 stated that they are bullied on a daily or weekly basis. People with a disabilities are tolerated in our society and nothing about them is celebrated until now....
I have a dream which I will use every last breath in my body to achieve - it's to create a business enterprise hub where my sons Autistic mindset is shifted through inspirational collaboration where the ADHD & Dyslexic entrepreneurs who are young and mature get to celebrate the advantages of the way there beautiful minds are wired. 40% of the self made millionaires out there are dyslexic, Edison, was branded an unteachable child when he was 6, we wouldn't have the light bulb without him. Without Branson we wouldn't have a billionaire and the head of Virgin Industries, Walt Disney, and Donald Winkler, former CEO of Ford Credit, as well all the other very successful people with learning disabilities. ..can you imagine all the wonderful gifts we are missing out on because people with other specific learning difficulties are left feeling less than amazing. So start imagining a place where hope is restored and the constant limited beliefs that are bounced to people with specific learning difficulties are bounced away like a tennis ball - bounced away like masterful serve almost like a classic Federar response where everyone suddenly becomes in awe of his unique abilities. Lets give the parents and carers a place to reinergize by having a respite service where there are trained staff to care for the child for a few hours a day/week/month, where the staff can take them out to parks, shopping etc, would meet all their needs. It will improve the health and well being of the carers who then in turn can be better carers for their children. Lets have a space where people are celebrated not tolerated for there uniqueness, a space where they are constantly honing there skills and working towards there common goal of producing great output and excelling beyond everyone's expectations.Revenue streams will derive from the coffee shop downstairs, the on rotation pop-up space businesses % of profits next to the cafe which also has a stage/presentation area all while the cogs behind the wheels upstairs are honing there skills to constantly launch there businesses and skills downstairs. In addition the, room rentals, respite centres will bring in more revenue and leverage the business community through referral networking. In 2012 there were an estimated 4.8 million businesses in the UK which employed 23.9 million people, and had a combined turnover of £3,100 billion. Think of the potential growth to the economy with all the creative ideas that can be honed to bring billions in revenue, can you imagine the amount of Steve Jobs that we are missing out on!
