We have found this knowledge to be critical when teaching children of all ages and abilities.
If a child cannot learn effectively the way we teach, we should teach the way they learn. This is true of EVERY child, but more so with children with ADHD and/or ASD.
This is important to us because it takes more than having a high international standard of music to teach ADHD and Autistic students, or very young children from 3 years of age who have a lower attention span.
- Development of much more effective strategies for teaching children and adults with ADHD and/or Autism
- Reducing the feelings such as stress, pressure, anxiety, and shame of a child or adult with Autism or ADHD during a learning process to promote the building of their confidence.
- Transferring skills required for ADHD or Autistic children and adults to build their motivation, maintain focus, and help in managing control of their emotions in learning situations.
- Ensuring that the strengths of the ADHD or an Autistic child or adult is highlighted and used as an advantage in learning at a faster pace
