    Neurodiversity in the Classroom: Strength-Based Strategies t

    in Parents

    A new concept on human diversity has emerged over the past 10 years that promises to revolutionize the way educators provide services to students with special needs: neurodiversity. Just as we celebrate diversity in nature and cultures, so too do we need to honor the diversity of brains among our students who learn, think, and behave differently. In Neurodiversity in the Classroom, best-selling guest Dr. Thomas Armstrong argues that we should embrace the strengths of such neurodiverse students to help them and their neurotypical peers thrive in school and beyond.  His innovative book focuses on five categories of special needs: learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, intellectual disabilities, and emotional and behavioral disorders. We will discuss: * The positive attributes associated with that category, * Acclaimed neurodiverse adults who have excelled in their chosen fields, * Computer programs and applications that allow students with special needs to overcome obstacles and achieve success, * Rich networks of human resources both inside and outside of school that educators can draw upon to support the social and emotional lives of neurodiverse students, * Innovative learning strategies that are tailored to each student's unique strengths, * Future career paths for which a student s particular gifts might be a good fit, * Modifications in the school environment that allow for seamless inclusion of neurodiverse students in the regular classroom, and * Timely information about how to integrate the strategies and assessments for each category with the Common Core State Standards.

    Learning Ally Tells Us about their Services and Upcoming Events

    in Education

    Jennifer Biang is a Parent Support Specialist for Learning Ally. She lives in California and is the founding member of Decoding Dyslexia CA. She is also on the board of her local IDA and is married and has two children. When she found out her daughter was dyslexic, she was surprised that there were no services available to teach her how to read. Back in the early 70’s Jennifer was taught to read with a special program, it worked so well that she never realized she had a problem. It was hard to believe that these services were not available for her daughter. Once she learned more about neurodiversity she realized over half of the people in her family had alternative wiring. The biggest surprise was, she too is dyslexic.


    Deborah Lynam is currently the Director of Parent Community Engagement at Learning Ally. She is a newly appointed member of NJ DOE's State Special Education Advisory Council. She is an active participant in the growing network of statewide parent-led grassroots movements called Decoding Dyslexia. She is a former Family Resource and Parent Group Specialist for NJ's Parent Training and Information Center, SPAN; as well as, a volunteer tutor for The Reading Assist Institute. Two of her three children are dyslexic and receiving services through their local public school district.

    What causes these problems and what can be done about it?


    Also: Is it a crisis to have three arms, legs, or breasts? What about having no eyebrows?


    Tune in as CAN Radio hosts explore these topics as well as news and updates from the Council for Autism and Neurodiversity.


    As always, special thanks to the volunteers, interns, and members who put together this public service program.

    Neurodiversity Radio: Founder/Director of Inclusion Teaming

    in Spirituality

    Catherine Hogan is the Founder and Director of Inclusion Teaming, a non profit corporation.   The mission of Inclusion Teaming is to reduce bullying and facilitate talent through communication diversity training where challenged communicators and traditional communicators learn from each other.   Catherine is a licensed clinical social worker and certified school social worker. Catherine has devoted her career to understanding behavior in terms of brain based differences. Her interest developed at Smith College where she was an active member of the 504 Committee and the Mayor's Committee on Handicapped Affairs. Catherine worked in schools for special needs learners and began to recognize how interpretation of behavior is influenced by the limits of the observer's knowledge on how other great minds process information. Catherine was also a clinical supervisor at the Yale Child Study Center and an educational advocate. She is member of the ethics committee for the National Association of Social Workers, CT Chapter. Catherine founded Inclusion Teaming because she knew that challenged communicators needed real life opportunities to practice skills and traditional communicators needed knowledge that helped them integrate others effectively in school and workplace teams.    Visit the official page of Neurodiversity Radio:  www.AuthenticYouRadio.com/Neurodiversity-Radio
