Matthew Cox spent his elementary and middle school years thinking there was something wrong with his brain. For him, school work was a daunting, frustrating, and often embarrassing challenge. He was the kid who never seemed to catch up with his classmates, no matter how hard he tried. “Growing up with a disability was like having an elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about,” Matthew explained.

Matthew brings inspiration, humor, and practical strategies during his speaking engagements, inspiring change to those he works with.
