"I'm Normal to Me"
The theme of this week in UDL is "From Disability to Variability". It's a powerful shift of perception that's so necessary in our society and within our classrooms. Our syllabus asked us to watch this video by a girl with autism who summarizes this view well when she says, "We have special talents." Of course it requires a different outlook and approach to teaching if we want to really optimize the variable talents in our classrooms.
