ed-news-colorIf you haven’t subscribed to the web-based newsletter, Understood, I recommend it for any parent or teacher.  It provides valuable information and research-based strategies for helping students who struggle with learning.  Today’s email alert brought to my mailbox some very powerful information and resources that I thought was imperative to share with you all today.  Of particular importance are the simulations that allow teachers and parents to experience what it is like to have various learning issues through a child’s eye.  It  reminded me of the video FAT City: Frustration, Anxiety and Tension “ workshop video.  It is so important that adults in the child’s life do not assume what it is like or diminish the frustration and emotional tension that a child experiences in school; we need to understand the causes and the behavioral results of that emotional tension of not being able to accomplish what seems to be so easy for others.  Watch and learn and then understand: https://www.understood.org/en/tools/through-your-childs-eyes.
