After many years of working as a high school English teacher and special educator, Corinne Levitt decided to change direction and work primarily with adolescents with special needs and developmental differences. She wrote Exceptional Minds Across the Autism Spectrum in recognition of the need to promote the important role an enriched educational experience can have on the lives of students who stand to benefit the most from best teaching practices. Her background in learning disabilities, psycholinguistics, and the arts enabled her to "teach to the talent" while encouraging her students to discover and explore their potential. She inspires other educators to re-examine what lies behind our current understanding of the autism spectrum and learning differences, in order to create a school culture based on dignity, respect, social inclusion, and the right to a meaningful education.
In this episode, you will learn more about:
Developing a child's strengths and not becoming locked into labels.
Recognizing the adolescent years as an important opportunity for learning and developing new skills and talents as we prepare students for the future.
How to see past deficits and recognize the innate potential of all students to learn and thrive.
Let’s jump into my interview with Laurie Hellman!
