Last weekend I was fortunate enough to attend Victoria Bagnall‘s Executive Functions are the cogs behind cognition: Neuroplasticity, Dyslexia and Neurodiversity live talk at The Dyslexia Show at the NEC Birmingham.
Want to understand more about home education?
Today I interviewed Ilana King from Education Pathfinder who is a home education expert, both as a parent and as an educator. She explained that there are as many styles of home educating as there are children.
We had a fascinating chat about home educating and teaching Neurodiverse children.
What do Neurodiverse children often love and excel in? Art, creativity and science… Therefore the concept of offering small group lessons to children with similar learning differences but not necessarily exactly the same age was born. Topic-based lessons full of fun! Each session focusing on practical enrichment activities that inspire and encourage children to think, problem-solve and above all, understand the ‘hows? and whys?’
