Nurturing social competence in a child with learning disabilities | Educating Exceptionalities | Scoop.it
Dr. Betty Osman explains how to nurture social skills in a child with a learning disability.
Jamie Williamson's insight:

Not sure that I agree with her labels on the three levels as she outlines them.  The term "cognitive deficit" is far to loaded of a term and implies a very different kind of issue as it related to ones overall intellectual/processing ability.  What's wrong with calling it what we've been calling it for quite some time?  A "skills deficit"...

Lincoln, he said, “always looked upward and always called American citizens to a higher road and to a purpose bigger than themselves. He did this by listening carefully to those both inside and outside of his immediate circle and sphere of influence. Listening, always being present and authenticity are essential leadership qualities whether one is leading a country in wartime or a company during a period of transformation.”
