Activity: Share your thoughts about the concepts and ideas presented in Definitions of Learning Disabilities

I learned the Learning Disability is a legal term. In addition, I learned that there 6 consensus statements associated with the concept of Learning Disability.  The information that I learned will allow me to be more empathic in my work with adults.

Hi, Jermel -

Thanks for sharing your activity with us.  I'm curious how understanding these consensus statements will make you more empathetic with adults you teach.  Can you tell us more about what that may look like in your work?  Do you have any questions about how to show empathy with these learners?  What resources might you use?  What resources do you still need to think through how to show 'supportive empathy' in these situation?
