This issue is beyond my expertise and experience, but I include it to show how our growing understanding of the science and neuroscience of life and learning has the ability to transform. Thank you to Olympia Therapy for sharing.

This understanding should not be solely the domain of medical and healthcare professionals, or even of the SENCO, all teachers need much greater awareness of conditions and syndromes that can hamper learning.

In all my teaching career I remember just two occasions when such things were dealt with in a whole school training event. The first was for what to do if a child had an epileptic seizure, and the second was on the use of an epi-pen.

We must do better, individually and collectively.

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
