From a local teacher who took both the ADHD & Dyslexia courses. " The calm and AIM resource poster gives a great layout of strategies for teachers and educators. I like how the course gave you opportunities to reflect on your own teaching and give a self assessment as you go through each module. The Supplemental resource section (videos and texts) is amazing!
