THE NEURODIVERSITY BRAINS ARE RISING UP! ARE YOU BULLIED BECAUSE YOU THINK BRILLIANTLY DIFFERENT FROM NORMAL BRAIN? TEACH THOSE NORMAL BRAIN TO LEARN NEURODIVERSITY... Or  Is it Dysteachia, is it Teaching Disability (borrowed terms), is there abnormal brain or is it the education system itself? Choose an empathetic teacher, a mentor, a life coach that can elevate you or maybe your parents for home-school/ UnSchool. CREATE. Collaborate. The world needs the unique you...you have your birth name not label." Creation says, we are peculiar people, a royal generation in the hand of a great mysterious Creator of the universe. What about considering UnSchooling? What about trying home-schooling? What about Finland's education system? What about foods our kids eat? Eat food responsibly. Avoid eating lots of adulterated (processed) foods and genetically modified foods or GMO! --- IT'S TIME TO PERSONALIZE OR CUSTOMIZE TEACHING AND LEARNING SPACE. ~Quote "Everything man needs to sustain good health is provided by God in nature it is the job of science to find it." by Paracelsus, Father of Pharmacology~ Curated by http://www.queentulip.com/

Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds

Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.

 

 

Collection of First's insight:

BE INSPIRED, you would have watched this TED's talk by Temple Grandin by now? ... SUCH AN INSPIRATIONAL SPEECH ESPECIALLY IF ONE MEMBER OF OUR FAMILY HAS DYSLEXIA, LD, ADHD, OR AUTISM, ETC. I WONDER IF WE CAN ACTUALLY CUSTOMIZE EACH INDIVIDUAL SO-CALLED "NORMAL BRAINS" AND COME UP WITH "DIAGNOSE TERMS" LIKE THEM (dyslexia, dyspraxia, LD, ADHD, Autism, etc)  INSTEAD OF "NORMAL BRAIN"? (I capitalize those words because I'm shouting for those who are not empathetic to these people if only they listen and give their children, siblings, students or kids a second chance of hope...). 

 

Every one would have watched Temple Grandin's documentary film by now. It's moving and uplifting to know that a diagnosed autistic individual living testimony of Dr. Temple Grandin enabled her disadvantage as an advantage to be what she dreamed to be. Currently a great lecturer and speaker for those who she inspires in the world! She's amazing gifted woman indeed like any other unique individual out there!

 

I'm dedicated curating this page to understand and empathize my beloved younger sister how she's going through. She's our only sibling of five who's undiagnosed dyslexia. I empathize with families who have to go through this process lifetime and experiences every day. Each individual is genius to be uncovered, has great ability and strengths to focus on. My undiagnosed dyslexic sister has excellent memory for experiences and visual learner. She's a people person and could unreliably change your original story into her own version story upon relaying in the moment. She has an athletic ability and had won gold/silver medals unexpectedly when she competes for marathon from local sports events even to the national level despite her school teachers' corruption in financial terms whenever they have won a price.  Unfortunately my sister school offers lack of education on their reading difficulty in the Philippines. Basically, the local government don't support 100% why would they allow Special Education schools to mix "learning difficulty children with deaf children in one classroom? My sister knew she does not need "sign language" year after year at all, no wonder if you knew my sister from day one she went backwards on her reading abilities rather she would have moved forward by now. When she was pre-schooler level she could follow my mother to read the Bible in Ilocano translations. Sad and shameful to say this part because it has to be exposed for teachers who are just chasing money or preying on the defenseless instead of empowering  the Special Education system learners to let them rise or flourish in this fast changing world and quick learning dotcom generations! My sister has to leave school  as teachers never helped her much and disgustingly a male teacher also teasing her badly she's an old woman amongst the younger kids in her class.

 

It breaks my heart when my little sister asks if she has still hope for learning at school under our circumstance limitation.

 

I hope teachers should learn from Sir Ken Robinson and alike on TED.com talks if you haven't heard of him yet...you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Coding Allows Learning Disabled Students to Shine

Coding Allows Learning Disabled Students to Shine | Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, LD, Autism (etc. conspiracy labels out there)  Education Tools & Info | Scoop.it
Learning to code is become increasingly prevalent in school curriculum’s. From after-school clubs to dedicated class periods, coding and computer science curriculum are popping up in schools worldwide. One place surprising place where coding is also increasingly being used is in programs for students with learning disabilities. There are many benefits of coding for learning and development in LD students. Coding builds important life skills such as organization, higher order thinking, self-esteem, socialization and teamwork, among many others. These skills are intrinsically hard for many children with disabilities such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Autism which affects 1 in 68 school aged children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the National Center for Learning Disorders, “ Many individuals with LD suffer from low self esteem.” Coding builds confidence in one’s ability to learn and create, as well as pride from actually creating something, as opposed to other types of learning, which can cause confusion and frustration in learning disabled students. This builds overall confidence; many learn-to-code platforms are accessible and easy to get started for everyone. Independence is also a skill taught through coding and coding clubs. “Adolescents with autism can benefit from transition services that promote a successful maturation into independence and employment opportunities of adulthood,” according to Autism Speaks,a leader in autism help and awareness. One organization pioneering the learning of code in students with disabilities is NY based, Tech Kids Unlimited. Beth Rosenberg, the parent of a learning disabled child, started the organization in 2009, in order to give her son, and other children with disabilities “practical skills and employment options,” which for these kids, Rosenberg says, “is really dismal.” According to a 2014 study, only about 19 percent of people with disabilities in the U.S. were participating in the labor force, meaning that they were working or seeking employment, and about about 16.8 percent of the these participating were employed, reported by the Autism Society, and Rosenberg is one of the people working to change that through technology skills. Coding gives LD students “real world skills,” said Rosenberg, “it turns them into producers of digital culture.” It also interests them, and makes them more willing and “likely to socialize,” building the important skill of teamwork and socialization, often lacking in the learning disabled student population. Technology learning also appeals to many learning disabled students, including those with autism, who are especially receptive to concrete, non-abstract concepts,explained Rosenberg. Another group of parents started the nonPareil Institute after they realized their learning disabled children shared a strong interest in technology. The institute provides technical and career training to students with autism with the goal of making their members employable in the tech industry. An adult with a learning disability, who goes by the Reddit handle shnnycs, successfully works in the tech industry, saying, “I work as a systems administrator and I think it’s great for my ADHD because it’s pretty much a stream of new problems to solve.” As increasing numbers of parents and educators realize the potential of coding and technology learning in students with learning disabilities, it will be used more often and with increasing success, allowing learning disabled students, and adults, to shine.
