This is Alisa.

We are extremely excited to share our completed claymation Public Service Announcement: This is Alisa.

This is Alisa. She is many ages at once — 6 years old chronologically, but 20 when she reads astronomy, 8 years old socially, and 4 when she tries to write neatly. She is asynchronous. Some people call this being a high-potential child. But her potential will never be realized if her extremely intense needs aren’t met.

The fact that society is failing to meet Alisa’s needs is damaging, frightening, and alienating to her. She should have the same right to have her needs met as any other child.

There are thousands of kids like Alisa in the United States, kids who are many ages at once. They are as diverse as the population of our country. They all require support for their intense needs. The Asynchronous Scholars’ Fund aims to use a proven model to support them.

You can make a difference. Donate to the Asynchronous Scholars’ Fund today. Thank you for your support!
