EU246: Unschooling and Neurodiversity with Michelle Morcate





Michelle Morcate joins me this week to talk about their unschooling journey and how unschooling is such a natural fit when considering neurodiversity because it’s all about facilitating our children as individuals, how they learn, and how they want to move through the world. Michelle’s excitement as an ally and advocate is contagious and we have a wonderful, flowing conversation about it all.

“Children who have the freedom to explore a variety of things and discard them when they no longer make sense do not feel like failures when they choose to drop something. Instead they see it as another experience from which to learn a bit about something and a lot about themselves. This is a much better attitude than the child who is forced to stay, being told to suck it up and stick it out, who begins to feel powerless and resentful. As an adult this child is more likely, for example, to stay in an unhappy career so as not to look or feel like a failure, though he will definitely feel trapped.”
Pam Laricchia, Free to Learn: Five Ideas for a Joyful Unschooling Life

“The next time you find yourself reaching for the word teach, substitute the word learn. It”
Pam Laricchia, What is Unschooling?: Living and Learning without School

“What matters is learning something when there is a need or interest, because that is when it will connect to what they’re doing and make sense to them.”
Pam Laricchia, What is Unschooling?: Living and Learning without School
