Temple Grandin introduced us to the world of visual thinking as it relates to Autism Spectrum Disorders and other forms of neurodivergence in her first book, Thinking in Pictures. It was also made into a movie that does a great job illustrating what it’s like to be a visual thinker. So, I was so excited to hear that she has just released a new book, Visual Thinking.
Our grandson went to first grade in a very ‘desirable’ school. Unlike some other schools in the area, they still had art, music, library and gym class. Turns out the school and the district were very test score, worksheet, drill, drill, drill focused and, it was a hard year for everyone involved. When he moved the next year, I prayed he’d get a teacher that understood him. A teacher with a heart to help him feel safe and teach him in ways he could learn. Thankfully, we got that teacher and so much more.
I’m getting excited for my FREE online LIVE EVENT tomorrow at 1pm CST. It’s not too late to join me if you haven’t already! I have been working tirelessly to find the best information to help you figure out why your kids are under performing in school and give you great ways to finally reach them and break the cycle.
