ADULTING WITH FASD
I am 41 years old, yet my memories from my MUCH younger, elementary school days remain with me. Looking back at my school days, I have #takeaways for #educators that were the backbone of my success in school. Check 'em out:
IDEAS for EDUCATORS:
1. Write directions down for the student to copy.
2. Ask the student if they understand the directions.
3. Be open for questions.
4. Have the student buddy up with another student to assist with writing down assignments that have to be completed.
5. Don't have your classroom too colorful or "busy."
6. Allow the student more time to process questions before requiring an answer.
7. One on One help in school, after school, before school; either by a teacher or a fellow student.
8. Try to limit the number of directions given at once to the student.
9. If you use a "Play on Words," just make sure the student understands the true meaning.
10. Patience. This one applies to all involved!
