The Dyslexic Brain: Must-See Video - NCLD

Shranna's insight:

1 in 5 people have Dyslexia. The common definition that we know about Dyslexia isn't exactly what it is. When an individual have Dyslexia it isn't just about reading the words backwards but it is the incapablity of manipulating the words into different formats. Further, not being able to read the word as a whole. I think this is essential in knowing when being an instructor because this is a common disablity amongst young children. Syllable types and rules are a way we can use to help children with Dyslexia. I think it is essential to understand the different methods on teaching a child in a classroom.

After the math test, researchers interviewed the children to assess which types of problem-solving strategies each had used: Simply remembering an answer they already knew; counting on their fingers or in their heads; or breaking the ...

Shranna's insight:

When a kid has a learning disorder their brain functions differently where one side of the hemisphere functions quite rapidly than the other. In this article it shows how Autistic kids are advanced in math due to the part of the brain that is more dominant than the other hemisphere. Autistic kids have a strong and defined capability in remembering faces and visual objects. I think knowing this information instructors/ educators can use this as a method in assisting children with autism.

In order to be fair we have got to treat them different

In order to be fair we have got to treat them different | Learning Disabilities | Scoop.it
A couple of months ago I was touring an inclusive charter school that my wife and I want my son to attend for middle school. As we toured the different classrooms I noticed a sign hanging over the blackboard in every class.

Shranna's insight:

I am glad I came across this mentor. In Rick Lavoie's blog he mentions that all children are treated differently and that is because different kids need different needs. The way to be fair towards children is to treat them accordingly that follows their needs.

Alternative Wiring: Which Teaching Methods Are Best For You?


Via Emilie Peck
Shranna's insight:

I wanted to include this article into my section on 'learning disabilities' because I was intrigued by the different methods that were stated in helping children or anyone willing to learn. It states online education where it is a standarized curriculum but the only difference is, it is full hybrid course. I think it is true that we follow the traditional act of going straight to college and failing to do so creates depression. But finding other alternatives to match our needs and wants may help an individual to perform better academically.

Grandparents! Books on tape available free at lending libraries are a great place to introduce struggling readers to 'ear-reading' and the world of stories and text.--Lou

Shranna's insight:

This blog shines children with learning disabilities in a different light. What I got from this blog is that it is okay to learn differently. I think that bad behavior can mean so many things in a child and can be linked into other factors that is discomforting due to it. I hope to be   mindful as a future educator and be able suppress the situation in my classroom.

Different students absorb information in different ways, so adopting a multifaceted teaching style benefits everyone.

Via Kathy Koustoubardis
Shranna's insight:

" Different students absorb information in different ways, so adopting a multifaceted teaching style benefits everyone" is said perfectly. I believe that a classroom is filled with children from different backgrounds, and beliefs that it is important to look at a topic/ subject in different angles. I also believe that being aware with the many learning disabilities that- as an instructor it is essential to be able to tackle a subject with variety. I think that there are many tools nowadays that assist children on being able to learn a particular topic where eventually they will learn is just great!
