Differently wired: students with high abilities and special needs

Friday, November 15, 2019

On behalf of the Shoreline Hi Cap Parent Association and Shoreline Special Needs PTSA and by a generous grant from the Lake Forest Park Rotary, we would like to invite to you an upcoming movie screening which is an inspirational documentary about a school environment that embraces neurodiversity.

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2019
Time: 7:00-9:00 pm
Location: Shoreline Conference Center, Shoreline Room (north end)
18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155

Twice exceptional students (or “2e”) have “a mix of high abilities and special needs – differences such as learning disabilities, attention deficits, and behavioral difficulties” such as autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. 1 in 5 students are neuro-diverse or differently wired and many struggle to learn in a traditional classroom setting. This might describe your child or students that are learning alongside your student.

Following the 77-minute movie (with Spanish subtitles), there will be a moderated discussion with the audience. Translators will be available upon request. A summary of this screening and community question/comments will be presented at a future Shoreline School Board meeting.

RSVP to receive a comprehensive viewer’s guide and request translation services before the screening. This is a free event and all families are welcome but no childcare is provided.
