In today's inclusive educational landscape, it’s critical to effectively support neurodiverse students in general, content-area, and special education classrooms. This course is packed with resources sharing definitions, strategies, and explanations for a new perspective on what it means to be neurodiverse. Learn how to shift behavior interventions to better serve neurodivergent students, and explore how to support students with executive functioning strategies. Challenge misconceptions related to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and celebrate neurodiversity through a strengths-based lens. To culminate your learning, you will adapt a unit to include principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), create a behavior strategies guidebook, or prepare a plan to assist students who struggle with executive function. You’ll leave this course with a new comprehension of neurodiversity, and ideas for appreciating both the strengths and needs of neurodivergent learners.
