I’ve just completed a 13 minute video (available on You Tube) that describes my new book:  Neurodiversity in the Classroom:  Strength-Based Strategies to Help Students with Special Needs Achieve Success in School and Life.  In the video I explain the concept “neurodiversity,” describe my idea of ”positive niche construction” (which is essentially, creating a favorable school environment within which students with special needs can flourish), and finally, I go through the seven components of positive niche construction, including:  strength awareness, positive role models, assistive technologies/UDL, enriched human resource networks, affirmative career aspirations, positive environmental modifications, and strength-based learning strategies. Here is the link on You Tube to the video.   I hope you enjoy it!
