Open Access Articles

Podcasts and More

  • Tilt Parenting — a podcast about learning disabilities, parenting differently wired children, and more:

    • Comment from a workgroup member: “While trying to understand how to support our son’s needs, I binge-listened to this podcast. The interviews and personal stories gave me so many good ideas and so much hope.”

  • Bright & Quirky - a website that has an archive of presentations given by experts in many topics relevant to 2e students. There is free content available in the blogs or live summits, but a warning that past “summits” require payment for access:

  • Understood - for learning and thinking differences:

    • Comment from a workgroup member: “I'm hoping people are aware of this resource as it continues to be so helpful to me in explaining terms in bite-size pieces, and offering clarity where differences in medical/education/legal jargon create confusion (e.g., "Dyslexia" vs. "Specific Learning Disorder in Reading" vs. "Learning Disability"). It also includes unofficial "slang" terms (e.g., "stealth dyslexia") that have given me a framework for understanding my kids and helped me communicate about them when speaking across disciplines.”
