Differences to Celebrate.
Stevens, Suzanne H.
ACLD Newsbrief, n160 May-Jun 1985
A teacher of learning disabled (LD) students reviews characteristics associated with right brain functioning and notes the ways in which LD students may exhibit such skills, often to the dismay of teachers interested in classroom order. Examples cited are children with unique spatial abilities, with needs to relate to concrete experience, with autistic temperaments and extreme sensitivity, with an expanded focus of attention, and with caretaker qualities. The beneficial side of each of these qualities is suggested and brief management suggestions are offered. (CL)
