There were lots of notes I could have taken in reading this book. Not this go around though.
I'll just go with this...
This book had good specifics - gross motor vs fine motor vs graphomotor.
Nice insights for approaching all kids and especially the "special needs" kids. Generally the special education meetings concentrate on the learning difficulties and what needs to be done to accomodate them. This book starts with the story of the Kinko's founder who had great difficulty in school. He was the one assigned to make copies in business school and discovered how difficult it was. This book talks about many creative leaders out there who had difficulty throughout school, and really focuses on looking at the strong traits these people have. It suggests that meetings spend more time on the positive - recognizing a student's strengths and how those can counteract weaknesses.
