  • I thought this class gave a thoughtful look at gifted learning with good information and resources. The length was just right. It gave me enough time to look into things further, but still enough content to gain a lot of my learning there.

  • I really enjoyed this course, ""Understanding ADHD"". Times have changed and there are many new things to help ADHD students. I really got a very good update in this subject.

  • The class was repetitive in a GOOD way! Reviewed ideas helped me to connect them with situations and commit to memory. I learned so much! I have not taken any special education classes and this gave an excellent overview that I can readily apply to autistic children in my life.

  • Great course!

  • Before taking this course, I had tried understanding and learning by some professional development classes/conferences/workshops, but never at this depth. It has been very eye-opening to learn how the brain operates when any of these conditions are present. I feel a lot more confident to face my students, since I have the basic tools to understand what I am looking at and, therefore, I can be much more effective when dealing with the issues related to this group of students. I am excited about reading and keeping on educating myself, so I can be the best I can be for my students. I would like to share what I have studied with other teachers and help them to overcome obstacles we all encounter in our classrooms.
