This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Mark Fairbanks draws his identity from his most important role in life: being a father. In his case, this was a role marked by raising an autistic son. Mark introduces “Islands of Brilliance,” a program created to educate autistic children, not by attempting to shift them towards society’s norm, but rather by focusing on what makes them different: their perseverance. The results will leave you speechless.

Mark Fairbanks is the co-founder of Translator, a design firm located in the Third Ward of Milwaukee, as well as the founder of Islands of Brilliance.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
