Cook’s Online Fall Fun Educational Series Schedule

Posted on Leave a comment

The launch of my ELBERT™ classes went very well this summer with a few classes!  This fall I’m offering many more tutoring sessions, intervention and enrichment classes as well as evaluations! Please look for my other classes (BELOW) starting Aug. 24!!! If you’re on OUTSCHOOL- times vary from below], some classes start earlier on August 3rd…if you want to learn about my other classes and/or individual help go to www.myelbert.com or https://myelbert.com/2020/07/11/cooks-fall-fun-educational-series/ for more information.

In my classes and sessions,  I cover the affirmations of strengths of having a neurodifference and view them as “gifts” such as we are highly intelligent and have the ability to use tools and strategies to compensate for struggles to read, write, or spell.  We may excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from many different sides, and spatial relationships along with the ability to think in 3 dimensions. We often have intuitive and insightful, well-developed social awareness and emotions while possessing a lexicon of words to help with the synonymous “whys of dyslexia”. We also have deep and holistic, list-form thinking, problem-solving, and building/constructing abilities, computer skills, and gaming strategies. Lastly, we seek out endeavors of creative, imaginative, visual, artistic, and visionary skills while taking on inventing and innovating pursuits.
