A great school, a great teacher, and a great class can make a vast difference or do wonders for any student, especially one who has a mental or neurological disorder.
NEW SCHOOL, FANTASTIC TEACHER & STAFF.⇔ ⊇ π
To all the wonderful super teachers that can be a positive influence making a student feel special, valued, supported, appreciated and significant. There are teachers out there that go out of their way to make a student feel special.
They have some special ability to connect, interact and motivate a student. They are exceptionally devoted to their profession. ÎΞ
But there are also some who lack awareness and affection and will send a student to time out or put on detention at the drop of a hat.
Difficulties at school♦ ♣ Θ Advice.
If any parents out there have children or young adult or know someone who is having trouble in school, college, university because of their condition, maybe you could ask if they can give the class a speech about their condition with the teacher support. It makes it easier for the classmates to understand and accept the differences. Maybe they could make a drawing or use an art/craft or musical instrument that he or she enjoys and is good at for example drawing with texts or a rap freestyle or even singing.
Students with additional needs they are entitled to extra support/ teacher assistant, mentor, brain breaks, time out space, and maybe even counselling. It can be extremely difficult for them to catch up on studies/grades/assignments/deadlines when they have a condition or illness that affects their mood, behaviour, Example of some would beADHD, DYSLEXIA, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, SLEEPING PROBLEMS.
It can be a helpful outlet to express and relieve tension while explaining something meaningful. Raising awareness.
Where the whole class will be paying full attention and everybody listening. It may not be necessary for some, this depends how much your condition/illness affects your mental health or studies. But i believe it works for some students. Even at work place i believe the employer can arrange to do a meeting where he or she can explain the condition/illness how it affects and the impact it has. There are many work colleagues/staff who are very hurtful and inconsiderate to one’s person illness or condition. Many face lack of empathy, understanding and awareness.
I strongly believe by doing this it can get rid of stigma and bring out more clarity.
