Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, LD, Autism (etc. conspiracy labels out there)  Education Tools & Info
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.

***"It is said that people who are dyslexic have a greater appreciation for color, tone, and texture. Dyslexics are incredibly visual, and have an acute sense of two-dimensional and three-dimensional form. So it should come as no surprise that artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, and Jackson Pollock are said to have had dyslexia." http://girlatthemirror.com/2012/03/the-gift-of-dyslexia/

NO MATTER HOW TAMPERING CAN BE DONE, HE WILL ALWAYS USE THE ORDINARY OF THIS WORLD FOR HIS EXTRAORDINARY ETERNAL PLAN.

MoringaMummy's curator insight, May 4, 3:40 AM
Fantastic article and so true. Aside from his beloved dog the IPad was without doubt the best purchase I ever made for my son. It has proved to be an investment that has changed his life and opened up educational opportunities that were always closed to him in the traditional education setting. Soon after the iPad arrived I could see him blossom in a way school never allowed and we quickly switched to home education. 2 years down the line there is no stopping him now!
