Meeting the challenge.
Practical initiatives to manage ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Specific Learning Difficulties
This presentation aims at empowering teachers to feel more confident about making positive changes for their 'A' students. After all, the day to day contact, management and responsibility is theirs.
Our knowledge concerning the best professional choices to underpin the emotional balance and learning of these students is critical, especially in a climate where there is an increasing moral, legal and professional accountability to include and engage students with diverse abilities. This places a responsibility on us to gain as much knowledge as we can. As we do so, we place ourselves in a position to astutely manage students with differences and difficulties.

The North Wind and the Sun
A dispute arose between the North Wind and the Sun; each claiming that he was stronger than the other. At last they agreed to try their powers on a traveller to see which could soonest strip him of his cloak. The North Wind had the first try; and, gathering up all the force for the attack, he came whirling furiously down upon the man, and caught up his cloak as though he would wrest it from him by one single effort: but the harder he blew, the more closely the man wrapped it around himself. Then came the turn of the Sun. At first he beamed gently upon the traveller, who soon unclasped his cloak and walked on with it hanging loosely about his shoulders: then he shone forth in his full strength, and the man, before he had got many steps, was glad to throw his cloak right off and complete his journey more lightly clad.
