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.

It's an exciting time to be working in music, memory and neuroscience - not that a study of 9 people is going to stand up in court but like so many other studies in this area - we're beginning to get an idea what may be going on.  Lots of research out in the last few years about the efficacy of sleep and that's being reflected in lots of the performance blogs.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, September 20, 2013 6:21 PM

Really interesting study out of Turkey and a decent sample size, over 1200 high school students.  They correlated music preference against childhood depression.  Kids with heavy metal music in their playlists had significantly higher depression scores than others.  However these kids also had greater problematic parent issues whereas those with alcohol issues tended to listen to dance and hip-hop.

 

Quite what it all means is where it gets dangerous - do you end up depressed and listening to heavy metal 'cos your home environment sucks?  Or do you fall under the "spell" of the metal gods and suddenly turn into a surly teenager with no respect?

 

I severely doubt the latter but you can bet that that's the spin the press will put on it if it gets hold the study.

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons | edutweet | Scoop.it

"As a dyslexic specialist and someone who knows a great deal about teaching children with dyslexia, I see on a daily basis the struggles these students face in the mainstream classroom. What can be written in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) varies from state to state, and, often, dyslexia is not even addressed. Sometimes, if you approach it as a reading disability or a processing disorder, the schools may be more willing to work with you. You have the right as parents to discuss with your children's teachers certain accommodations that will help your children perform better and allow them to measure a more-accurate assessment of their knowledge and intelligence. You may take this list in to your children's schools and/or teachers and discuss with them what they would be willing to do to help your children."
