“A World of Difference: Embracing Neurodiversity” celebrates neurodiversity and empowers families rearing children with learning and attention issues on their journeys from kindergarten through college.

“A World of Difference: Embracing Neurodiversity” earned two bronze medals at The Telly Awards, the world’s largest honor for video and television across all screens. The show has been recognized with five Telly Awards in the last two years.

“A World of Difference: Embracing Neurodiversity” celebrates neurodiversity and empowers families rearing children with learning and attention issues on their journeys from kindergarten through college.

Winners include some of the most prominent global brands and companies, alongside smaller and independent production houses. The program was saluted in these categories:

  • Bronze Winner in Television – Series: Education and Discovery
  • Bronze Winner in Television – Series: Video Journalism

“Winning a single Telly in competition with thousands of talented content creators and media and communications Goliaths is a testament both to the hard work the ‘A World of Difference’ team puts into the show and also the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion issues that AWOD explores through the lens of neurodivergence,” said Darryl E. Owens, associate vice president of communications and engagement at Beacon College and creator and host of “A World of Difference.”

The Telly Awards’ 44th annual edition boasted nearly 13,000 entries from across the globe, the most in a decade, with submissions flowing in from the U.S., Middle East, United Kingdom and Canada, as well as strong entries from Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and as widespread as Afghanistan, Sweden, New Zealand, Jamaica, and South Africa.

“The caliber of the work this season truly has reflected the theme of breaking out and standing out,” said The Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “Our industry is experimenting with new technologies like never before, crafting truly compelling stories to draw attention to some of the world’s most pressing issues, and companies big and small are turning to more sustainable practices to break the cycle of past production processes.”

Founded in 1989, Beacon College is the first accredited baccalaureate institution dedicated to educating primarily students with learning disabilities, ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning differences. Recognized nationally as a preeminent institution for accommodating and preparing students who learn differently to prosper in a global economy, Beacon College provides a forward-thinking environment with multiple degree programs and specialized support services for neurodivergent students.
