Jade Rivera’s work will completely resonate with so many of us Questers. With her unique experience working with neurodivergent children, we unpack what it means to be an alternative learner. We uncover what it means to have these needs that conventional education is not addressing. This episode explores: Microschools and Jade’s work developing these institutions with others, Neurodivergent learners and how they can be supported, Labels and the meaning or lack of meaning they offer, Achievement and what that looks like for different learners, Homework and testing- to do or not to do!, Connecting with your child and the choices you can make to truly support them, AND SO MUCH MORE! According to Jade, “if you’ve landed on my website, you’ve probably had some experience with neurodivergent children. Quirky children with brains that seem to work differently from the norm. Children who need an unusual amount of scaffolding to accomplish simple looking tasks yet inspire us with boundary pushing insights and creations. At best, you may have heard them described as gifted or as twice-exceptional. At worst, as weird or as trouble makers.” At the end of this episode, Jade gives solid advice for parents on how to best support their children… be sure to listen till the end!
