Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was a wonderful course that allowed me to learn and better understand in detail the way a child's brain develops. It is especially helped me to understand how a child with different disabilities learns and why they learn like that. This helps me with my son and in my classroom because it allows me to better understand each one of my students and their learning structures and habits.
I learned specific areas of the brain and how they connect to all work together when completing the thinking process. I also learned how differently the brain functions based on different disabilities and how it can cause difficulties with learning and why. I learned teaching strategies to help with these difficulties and to help in key areas where students may be low. I learned how to more efficiently set up the environment for my students to for more optimal learning. I also learned how to teach across a varying degree of learning needs based on the brains structure to my students.

Advice for students:
I would advise staying on top of your homework and your writing. Be sure to take notes that you can easily reference and do not be afraid to ask questions. There is a lot of detail in this course and a lot of information so manage your time wisely because it is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the vocabulary.
