Neurodivergent: Walking the Walk of Authenticity

Neurodivergent: Walking the Walk of Authenticity

Vicky Gilpin, Cerro Gordo High SchoolCollaboration 144

Authenticity requires a careful balance of the teacher's executive presence (Hewlett, 2014) the requirements of subject area, the needs of the students, the students' individual situations, both biological and environmental. Neurodivergence, on the part of the teacher, the students, or both, adds a bit of spice to the experience. This presentation/discussion will explore using teacher authenticity as an important element of relationship-building as a foundation for learning, maneuvering as a neurodivergent (autistic) teacher to support that authenticity, and modifying strategies to encourage success and accessibility for all in the neurodiverse classroom.
