Hier is ook in Nederland nog een wereld te winnen. Als de politiek zich nu eens wat minder hijgerig met onderwijs bezig zou houden en (goedopgeleide) docenten hun werk zou laten doen.

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, January 22, 1:22 AM

In addition to helping students acquire new knowledge, teachers today also need to guide students in developing the skills they need to become more self-determined and lifelong learners. These are competencies that can help teachers do just that.

Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson

Mistaking Dyslexia and ADHD as Normal Variations or Gifts is Potentially Dangerous, Warns Dr. Harold Levinson | dream. design. make. | Scoop.it
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2014 -- ADHD and www.dyslexiaonline.com/bio.html[dyslexiaexpert] Dr .

According to Dr. Levinson, the well-intended conviction that dyslexia and related ADHD are normal brain variations and even gifts, rather than medical disorders, is misleading and thus potentially dangerous, albeit reassuring to loving parents and other caregivers. The problem is that these alluring suggestions tend to discourage vitally needed perseverance and therapeutic insights while misdirecting crucial research.

These reassuring ideas were unwittingly reinforced recently by Malcolm Gladwell in his fascinating book,David and Goliath. He convincingly argues that handicapped Davids are forced to compensate and thus conquer their Goliaths — now and throughout history.
