“Strategies that Promote More Meaningful Inclusion for Diverse Learners”

It is important to celebrate learning differences and encourage society to adapt to being more inclusive of individuals with learning differences. There are ways to help individuals with language learning disabilities to navigate the world more easily. The use of neuroeducation methods and visual thinking strategies to expand opportunities for individuals with diverse learning needs have shown great promise. This course will explore strategies that parents, educators, and adults can use across environments to increase learning opportunities to promote more meaningful inclusion and long lasting brain growth.
