Expect Intelligence

From a teaching perspective, never approach a student with any preconceived notions as to their level of ability. Whether that child/young adult, is neurotypical or disabled, we are all intellectually different. Let’s not judge anyone by the way they appear, looks are deceiving. Given we approach this person expecting intelligence, with openness, trust and above all, kindness, miracles can happen. They may have a capacity for emotional knowledge, imagination, and creativity beyond our own comprehension. More times than not, we are likely to walk away surrounded by light, love, and a newfound proficiency in our teaching skills.

 Always expect intelligence.
