You have likely come into contact with many students who have learning differences - some slight, some moderate, and some severe. I currently teach at a school that focuses on the teaching of students with dyslexia and related language-based learning differences and I see all sorts of issues among college-bound high school students. In this talk, I wish to address some of the things you may see exhibited by your students. There is no solution that helps everyone, but there are strategies for teaching physics (and indeed all sciences) that I have found useful. I will chat about executive function, note-taking, lab preparation, classroom practices, and other possible ways to help address learning differences.
