Workshop Overview:

The landscape of education is ever evolving, and with that so is the makeup of our classrooms and schools. Students come to us with varying levels of abilities in all aspects of academic and non academic endeavors. They have differentiated strengths and weaknesses. As we become more aware of the neurodiversity of our population, general education teachers have a responsibility to meet the needs of all of the learners in their classrooms. By developing empathy, and building an increasing awareness of the vast diversities of the students sitting in our classrooms, educators will leave this workshop with very specific and actionable strategies to support students in managing everyday reading, writing, and listening challenges and in developing compensatory academic independence skills.
