There are academics to learn, professors to connect with, friends to make, social calendars to keep, arts and athletics to pursue, health to maintain, and careers to pursue. The more we can empower young people to have the experience which involves using strategies to accomplish tasks of all kinds, the more we will see them thrive and learn well.

Disability: ABILITY

book cover

The field of special education in 2022 has progressed to a point where we have ways to treat and support students with learning issues, and yet, we frame so much of the special education process from a deficit-based mindset. Even the word, “disability” supports this negative connotation of neurodiversity. This idea book outlines a paradigm for how to view and work with students with diagnoses formed through experience, research, and creativity in a way that supports an ability-forward mindset. Anyone who is parenting or teaching in the special education field would benefit from reading this book and using its ideas within the context of their practice.

Tutors can use this book to frame their practice, retain students, and empower students to learn well.

If that scenario sounds like a pipe dream, you are not alone. Sometimes our children struggle and need support neither you nor their regular teacher can provide. This is where tutoring steps in to fill the void.
