I love them so much that I have been pinning them to my Differentiation Pinterest Board to read later. I finally had an opportunity to check out the website that they were all coming from and I had to share it with you!
Understand.org is a website designed for parents of children with learning and/or attention difficulties.
While the website targets parents, there are plenty of resources for teachers and specialists. The professional jargon is minimal and information is concise. While we are all able to access the technical language associated with pedagogy and therapy, we would all rather read a simply worded summary.
If you are a Literacy Coach, Numeracy Coach, Special Education Teacher or other specialist, you will find the parent toolkit helpful for activities that can be used in PD programs. There are several games that parents/ teachers/ family members can play to experience what it can be like to have various learning difficulties.
I can see this website becoming a go-to site for material to share with my colleagues at school. As well as characteristics of learning difficulties, this website has information about the social and emotional side of learning difficulties. There are also recommendations for parents about communicating with their school and accessing assistive technology for their child.
