Specific Medical or Exceptional Learning Needs

Misunderstood Minds **Mrs. Baker LOVES this site!** PBS.org has created a set of interactive activities which offer the chance to simulate reading disabilities, writing disabilities or attentional issues
"He's lazy."  "If only she tried harder."  `He chooses to do it sometimes and not at other times.``  Have you ever entertained those thoughts about your child or any of your students? Have you ever heard your colleagues use those statements to describe any of their students? Do you realize how difficult it can be for our struggling learners, ALL DAY LONG?  If they could do it, THEY WOULD.  Though it does appear to be at time, it is NOT a conscious choice.  If you never struggled as a student, here is an opportunity to experience, even briefly, what school is like for too many of our students. It is vital we have empathy for what our struggling learners experience on a daily basis.
