Today’s article share from NPR focuses on the growing needs of children with learning disabilities to be able to be challenged and pushed academically so they can succeed. Not all IEP goals allow these students to reach their full potential and certainly not a “one way works for all” mentality can succeed. “Students in general education are required to meet well-defined standards written for grade-specific goals. In special education, there are not set academic standards.”
At Linder Education we agree that “all kids, despite their differences, are young aspirants and should be encouraged to reach their optimal potential. Creative teaching methods and research-based programs must be coupled with consistent and credible expectations to drive students, no matter what type of learner, to advance academically.” (To read the full article link, click here.)
