Lawrence School: Where Differences are not Disabilities and where Great Minds Don't Think Alike"


Via Lou Salza
Lon Woodbury's insight:

This short video is a good demonstration of the confusing world students with LD are faced with that creates a negative self-image, and how proper attention to their individual learning needs can change their self-image dramatically. -Lon

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 12, 3:06 PM

I found this interchange between Arne Duncan and Senator Cassidy fascinating.  Senator Cassidy of the Bipartisan Dyslexia Congress is flabbergasted: If Dyslexia is 80% of LDs and comprise at least half of students can't read, “Why the heck Don’t you have a specific program for Dyslexia?”

Senator Bill Cassidy is the parent of a child with dyslexia and is also a physician.

Bruce Haines's curator insight, May 13, 8:55 AM

Lou's on to something here. One of the most wonderful things I've observed in the past few years is the speed and persistence with which the grassroots dyslexia lobby has grown in so many state, and is now having an even greater impact with the federal government.

Via Nicole Rene Fuglsang
Lon Woodbury's insight:

One of the first things I learned when I started doing admissions for a forerunner of therapeutic boarding schools in the 1980s was that a diagnosis of ADHD meant that something was causing the child to be distracted.    It might be a child being bummed about their parent's divorce as much or more likely than a neurological problem. -Lon

Brain differences seen in children with dyslexia, dysgraphia | LD | Scoop.it
Structural brain differences between children with dyslexia and dysgraphia and children who are typical language learners have been observed by researchers in a recent study. Researchers say the findings prove that using a single category of learning disability to qualify for special education services is not scientifically supported.

It is a real improvement to be able to get something quantitative measuring the differences.  Makes getting a handle on what the situation is much more objective. -Lon

"The Way I See It" Using 1950's Parenting Methods Autism Asperger's Digest | LD | Scoop.it

The older I get, the more I realize that I was greatly helped by old fashioned 1950’s methods for teaching children social skills. Mother had good instincts on how much to “stretch” me so I would learn. To develop, I had to be continually moved outside my comfort zone. In our neighborhood, the rules were the same at every home, and good manners were always expected.

5 dangerous misconceptions about autism

5 dangerous misconceptions about autism | LD | Scoop.it
As a nation we think we understand autism. Since the first discovery of the condition just over 70 years ago awareness of autism has continued to grow. Despite this, 87 per cent of people affected by autism think the general public has a bad understanding of the condition.

Penrith Farms's curator insight, April 3, 1:06 PM

I think one problem with the misconceptions about Autism and Asperger's is that they believe the myths themselves.  From what I have seen a great majority of people with the diagnosis are quite capable.  Sometimes diagnosis is a detriment because it can impact what one thinks about themselves and what others think about them.

Moving on up - The promise of physical activity for improving classroom performance

Moving on up - The promise of physical activity for improving classroom performance | LD | Scoop.it
Today’s youth tend to lead more sedentary lifestyles compared to previous generations, as physical activity rates in children and adolescents have declined in recent decades. Students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) show particularly low rates of activity compared to their neurotypical peers. Promoting increased physical activity in these students as a means to increase health and well-being is a no-brainer.
