Adhara Pérez lives in the slums of Tlahuac in Mexico and when she was just 3 years old, she was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome.
“I saw that she was playing in a little house with her friends and they locked her up. And they started calling her names like ‘Oddball, weirdo!’, then they started hitting the little house. So, I said, I don’t want my daughter to suffer,” Nallely Sanchez, Adhara’s mother said.
Adhara also fell into depression and didn’t want to go to school, her mother said.
However, Sanchez took Adhara to therapy, and her psychiatrist recommended that they go to the Talent Care Center. Adhara’s high IQ was identified there. She was able to study in a learning environment that adapts to students with unique skill sets.
