Neurodiversity

Episode 6: In this episode we'll consider neurodiversity, a term signifying the amazing range of human brains, minds, and abilities -- abilities that are not always accommodated in schools. We'll hear from Peter Smagorinsky, a distinguished education professor at the University of Georgia, and Nick Walker, an educator, activist, and speaker. Smagorinsky and Walker are autistic men who share stories about their own experiences in schools and suggest ways that schools might better accommodate the talents and challenges of the neruodivergent.
