Different learners have different ways of learning, but when students are exposed to chronic stress, trauma, or drugs, or when a student's brain is impacted by developmental delays, abnormality, or chemical imbalances, academic achievement is threatened. Educators need to be able to understand the symptoms and make appropriate adjustments in the classroom.
Updated throughout and packed with powerful tools and strategies to help learners improve brain function, this full-color guide presents a concise outline for identifying prevalent impairments such as oppositional disorder, learned helplessness, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, dyscalculia, depression, auditory processing deficits, and more. With this reference, teachers can guide students with learning difficulties more effectively and be able to
- Recognize the most common conditions that challenge learners
- Accommodate the specific learning needs of students with learning impairments
- Minimize disruptions for other students
This second edition of Different Brains, Different Learners helps teachers become facilitators of successful interventions that can turn students who are at risk into confident achievers!
