Presented by: Joyce Pickering
For: General Audience
Format: Self-Guided Online Class
Maria Montessori used the scientific method of hypothesis, observation and conclusion to create a method to help children who learn differently. Her collaboration with Eduard Sequin and Jean Itard looked to answer the question: How does an educational method help individuals who have atypical development to achieve more typical development and ability to learn?

In this online workshop, we will explore how to apply Montessori education to children with varying learning exceptionalities. We will do this by providing an overview of the anatomy of the brain, and explain how humans learn and process information. Next, we will explore Montessori’s Four Planes of Development for children with typical and atypical development. Then, we will guide you through the process of creating a learning profile (coinciding with Montessori lessons) for children with learning differences through the use of several assessments: guided observation, screening, and full evaluation. Finally, we will apply Montessori education to children with varying exceptionalities. This will include an examination of the 9 principles of Montessori education described by Dr. Angeline Lillard.
