History of Special Education: The Next Chapter
At LearningRx, our goal is to write the next chapter in the history of special education. In this next chapter, we’d like to provide children with any type of learning difficulty a new option – and to see them not just surviving in school, but thriving. It may sound incredible, but brain training has already proven to improve learning disabilities – by targeting and exercising students’ weak cognitive skills. Brain science has uncovered the fact that cognitive skills are the fundamental tools we use to learn everything we learn. In fact, over 80% of all learning problems are caused by weak cognitive skills. Strengthening those weak skills is the basis of what we do. The history of special education is changing.
History of Special Education: Past, Present and Future
The history of special education is an inspiring story of equal rights in education. And there is growing potential for great things to happen in the future. Under the feeble educational laws that were set in 1918, many children with disabilities were regularly excluded from public schools. But look where we are now – enjoying a host of services tailored towards children with disabilities. It is obvious that great changes have already occurred. The outlook is hopeful for children with disabilities and their advocates. LearningRx is an advocate for these children, and though our brain training programs can improve the learning ability of just about anybody, we have a special place in our heart for children with disabilities. Giving these children a chance to learn and lead alongside their peers is, for us, the definition of great success.
