Participants will use the neuro-developmental constructs to examine which constructs are primarily demanded in one of their lessons. They will also prepare strategies for their students who struggle with the primary neuro-developmental demands of the lesson. The class will analyze a lesson together and come up with strategies for that lesson. The participants will then work on their own lessons and strategies. Results from some of the participants will be shared.
