At VBA we encourage all types of learning tips and tricks to ensure the child is understanding to their fullest. VBA understands that people learn differently and that is why we handle every case so seriously.
Take Robbie Williams, for example. The English singer-songwriter rose to fame as part of pop group Take That (1989-95). Overcoming a drug addiction, he built a solo career, releasing 12 albums over a decade; 11 of them reached #1 in the UK.
That’s all public knowledge, of course, but what isn’t typically known is that Robbie Williams lives on the spectrum. “When I was a young child I was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome,” he recently revealed. “Growing up was extremely difficult for me and I often felt out of place. I always felt that people didn’t understand me, yet I was afraid to reveal my true scales as I did not want the label or stigma that was attached to it.”
“For far too long I have suffered in silence and not acknowledged a massive fact about my life.” Williams recognizes the challenges associated with Aspergers syndrome, but is still coming to terms with ways to define it for himself. “It’s quite hard work being in my head,” he admits.
Despite his ongoing efforts to categorize the ups and downs associated with life on the spectrum layered atop the pros and cons of being an entertainer, Williams continues testing new musical styles and presenting his significant talents to the world each year. He’s prevailed in massive legal battles, sung around the world, and harmonized with big names like Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams. His 2019 Holiday album tied him with Elvis Presley for the most #1 UK albums.
Like Robbie Williams, VBA’s professional team recognizes there are challenges in life. And, like Robbie, we know sometimes hard work is needed to overcome those challenges.
Unlike Robbie, though, we’re willing to have the hard conversations early in life…and we have a lot of the answers.
