This class was created as part of a six course series entitled Strength-Based Teaching and Learning. The other five courses in the series are:
Just as we celebrate diversity in nature and cultures, so too do we need to honor the diversity of students who learn, think, and behave differently. This series is designed to help teachers and schools embrace the strengths of such neurodiverse students in order to help them thrive in school and beyond. The content learned in the class, Neurodiversity in the Classroom, will afford you the knowledge necessary to create strength-based classrooms and schools where students with disabilities flourish alongside their typically developing peers. By meeting the requirements of this class, participating teachers will earn one semester unit of graduate level extension credit from Dominican University of California, a fully accredited university.
Although Neurodiversity in the classroom is NOT a prerequisite for the other five courses, it does provide a foundation for them. All six classes in the Strength-Based Teaching and Learning series require one book entitled Neurodiversity in the Classroom: Strength-Based Strategies to Help Students with Special Needs Succeed in School and Life by Thomas Armstrong.Get Syllabus Questions?
