By the time children with disabilities come to us for Jewish education, they have often learned to expect that school will be a negative experience, and they may be coming to us terrified. Learning needs created by fear are often overlooked. Fear can be easy to misinterpret as a behavior problem, or as an unmet physical, sensory, or cognitive need related to a child's disability. This can lead to ineffective or counterproductive interventions. A discussion of fears common among children with disabilities, and practical strategies for meeting fear-related learning needs. This event is part of INCLUDE's Bay Area Week of Learning: Including All Families in our Communities.
