It is reassuring and pleasing to see the movement towards applying a ”diversity” worldview in education. This shift de-emphasizes ”disability” paradigm that has existed as a label and a mindset, and adopts a much more healthy ”diversity” perspective instead.
The concept of neurodiversity emerged in the 1990’s as a way for autism advocates to affirm their identity as people with neurological differences rather than as disabled individuals. The idea has spread as others have sought to articulate the ”diversity rather than disability” message to a broader segment of the population than just autism, including children and adults with ADHD, dyslexia, intellectual disabilities, and social and emotional disorders.
These are apps we would recommend for teachers and parents of kids with learning disabilities. We have arranged the apps into four main categories: apps for dyslexic learners, apps for autistic learners, apps for the visually impaired and apps for learners with writing difficulties.
