Provides a 165-item checklist to describe strengths in students with special needs. This checklist can also be used with typically developing students. There are two checklists: one for elementary and secondary students, and one for early childhood education. The checklist is taken from my book Neurodiversity in the Classroom: Strength-Based Strategies to Help Students with Special Needs Succeed in School and Life, published by ASCD. For information on ordering this book, or for more information about ASCD, visit www.ascd.org. For more information about this book and other books I've written, go to my website, www.institute4learning.com (the website of the American Institute for Learning and Human Development). I'm am available for workshops and other presentations on helping educators reframe students with special needs as ''neurodiverse'' rather than ''disabled,'' and utilize strategies, tools, and resources to help students with special needs flourish.
