Activity Name
Defining, Understanding, and Supporting Neurodiversity in the Public Schools
Description
In today’s diverse classroom, the need to both understand and create opportunities for success for neurodiverse learners is greater than ever. Students arrive in schools with varying levels of experience, self awareness, abilities, and preferences, which are not always best supported by the neurotypical way of doing things. In this virtual workshop, participants will explore the history and present day principles of neurodiversity through a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) lens. Participants will identify and explore ways of delivering and differentiating instruction in mindful, culturally relevant ways that ensure each learner is given equitable opportunities to grow and advocate for their needs. Through analysis of case studies, resources, and discussion, participants will have opportunities to reflect on their own practices and discuss future implications.
Objectives
Participants will be able to: Ddefine the term neurodiversity and how it applies to the students they serve; Able to identify, describe, and cite examples of the impact that masking has on neurodiverse learners; and Identify and use at least 2 neurodiverse affirming strategies, practices, and/or tools with students.
