Welcome to Exceptional ChildrenWhile you visit this page, consider the following: The light over your mirror was perfected by a deaf man. While your morning radio plays, remember the hunchback who helped invent it. If you listen to contemporary music, you may hear an artist who is blind. If you prefer classical, you may enjoy a symphony written by a composer who couldn't hear. The President who set unbeatable American political record could hardly walk. A woman born unable to see, speak, or hear stands as a great achiever in American history. (A message as published in the Wall Street Journal by United Technologies Cop.Hartford,CT 06101)
1. Read to your children daily and have them read to you. Ask about what happened in the story. Ask about the characters and the events that take place. Encourage them to read each day. 2. Designate a set time each day to go over homework together. 3. Keep a calendar of upcoming events, tests, projects due, etc. close by to refer to daily. 4. Praise your child's efforts and accomplishments!!
