Grade Level

Neurodiversity is a gift to our world, and understanding how to support neurodiverse students is essential in today’s classrooms. This information-packed course provides definitions, strategies, and explanations to shed a fresh perspective on what it means to be neurodiverse. You’ll adapt a lesson to include principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and explore strategies specifically for neurodiverse students. Learn how to improve your positive behavior game with shifts in practice that accommodate the unique needs of students who are neurodiverse, and challenge misconceptions related to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Prepare a plan to support students who struggle with executive function, and celebrate neurodiversity and diversity from a strengths-based perspective. This course will show general, content-area, and special education teachers, and supportive staff how to create a learning environment where every student can thrive, regardless of their unique learning needs.
