10 Ways To Help Kids With Learning Differences That Could Benefit All Students @currey_ingram  @_CLCook  @lawrenceschool

10 Ways To Help Kids With Learning Differences That Could Benefit All Students @currey_ingram  @_CLCook  @lawrenceschool | LD | Scoop.it


Dr. Mitchell has more than 25 years of experience in education and holds a Ph.D. in Human Learning, Development and Instruction from the University of British Columbia and a master’s in Educational Administration.


Schools are typically designed to serve the average student, and those with learning differences — such as dyslexia or trouble with executive functioning skills — usually make up a smaller part of the population. Estimates find that 5 to 20 percent of Americans have learning differences. If struggling students don’t find the help they need in school, keeping up with the rest of the class can be an enormous challenge.
