Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

These children seem obstinate, frustrating, and, at times, unlikeable. This is because they lack the self-control and vision to meet the expectations placed on them. Many children with attention deficit issues and learning disabilities will shut down academically. This is really not because they are defiant. Rather it is because our schools do not teach to these children's strengths (visual learning and hands on learning). Instead our schools primarily employ reading and memorizing as well as lecturing which are these children's weaknesses (See "The Shutdown Learner" paper below). My goal is to reach, teach, educate, and motivate them to develop the maturity and skills to succeed and shed this label.
