Online specialized learning provides neurodiverse students with personal space and time to work.
Having their personal space and time to work allows them to study at their own pace, without any pressure. In the same way, they get to access their learning materials, anytime, anywhere. To illustrate, giving them a mix of synchronous and asynchronous activities based on their schedule give them a sense of priority as well as flexibility.
Neurodiverse students are able to communicate clearly and confidently.
Most neurodiverse students are socially immature. Nevertheless, online specialized learning eases them in with communication without fear of diversion. As a matter of fact, programs like One-to-one support enables them to express themselves more which can really help in their growth.
Multi-sensory activities through home items.
Neurodiverse students need additional sensory modifications for them learn and grow. For instance, simple items that can be found at home, like dough and bubble wrap, can be incorporated in their activities. To illustrate, magic beans can be used for counting exercises. Further, Lego or Jenga blocks can exercise their critical thinking skills.
