Original uncertainty examples Can we develop a programme for education of educators about best practices for educating children with neurodevrlopmental conditions? ~ How the school system can provide better access to intervention that is more tailored to individual needs? ~ Why isn't there more expertise and awareness in the school system on neurodevelopmental disorders? ~ What can be done to better support teachers in schools? There is a glaring lack of understanding in general teaching strategies tend to be cookie cutter solutions that do not address individual needs. This leads to anxiety, depression and failure.
