Topic:A1 Understanding and Supporting Children with Special Needs: a Strengths-Based Approach


Synopsis: How can an educator continue to motivate a child who is disinterested in learning? What are the tools and approaches an educator can tap on to keep engaging a withdrawn child? This presentation explores the use of the strengths-based approach to enable every child to reach their learning potential. It is a strategy to move away from a deficit-based methodology which inadvertently may lead to an extensive list of things that the child cannot do or is unable to do. This approach works on the fundamental strengths and interests of the child in which learning becomes interesting and meaningful to that child.
