Two weeks ago I attended a three day training.
I learned and practiced a lot of new strategies to use with my students this year.
On the last day the presenter said something that caught my attention
"More students are structurally disabled
than learning disabled."
If a student is consistently not adapting to classroom structure we would rather slap a label on them; than change our ways.
As you start your new school year consider ways that will benefit all types of learners in your classroom. If you come across a student who is having difficulty falling into daily routines do not automatically assume they have a disability. Try everything you can before you slap a label on them because that label may never come off!
