“There are billions of neurons in our brains, but what are neurons? Just cells. The brain has no knowledge until connections are made between neurons. All that we know, all that we are, comes from the way our neurons are connected.”
There is a reason that you are dissatisfied with school for your child. It turns out that school may have been designed to provide an education for kids – but for neurodiverse kids, it very rarely does the same.
In the video below, I discuss what school is for and what it is NOT for. School is for:
– Feeling and being part of the community
– Social Interactions
and other really important gains that I discuss in this video
But school is NOT for education. And this may come as a shock to you, but it no way invalidates the value of school.
I am still trying my very best to get Sid into school, in a respectful, minimally segregated atmosphere this year. It may not happen (because the first instinct of most school districts that serve kids with neurodiverse needs is segregation” . But I won’t stop trying.
This, however, is WHY EDUCATION NEEDS TO BE SEPARATED FROM SCHOOL!
