Young Rembrandts classes can help children who may have difficulty in traditional classroom settings by allowing them to participate without the pressures of socializing and giving them steps to follow. Look at the positive impact Young Rembrandts classes have had on this student with an autism spectrum disorder as written by her grandmother.

Ever notice when kids don’t have their face in a screen, they’re still thinking and talking like they do. There are times my grandson seems to be speaking a foreign language, with great enthusiasm, but it’s not anything I understand. This is just not working for me anymore. I miss my grandson. I’ve been brewing on finding common ground. Finding a steady stream of things, we can talk about together. Not homework and not tech talk.
I am always reading and researching trends and ideas in kids’ education. I want to share with you what I have been reading so you can benefit as well. The first book is about something you may have been hearing a lot about recently. It has been a popular buzzword in education the last few years, grit.
There are plenty of times limiting the amount of time our kids are on their devices seems a hopeless, never ending battle, but it’s one we need to win. I have a few ideas to help you and the kids cut back on technology and discover there’s more life out there when they do.
