Giving kids space to be creative and make mistakes.
In the episode Angela Lockwood shares the process she went through with a group of boys who have Autism in designing a game for a fellow student who is non-verbal for use on her eye-gaze device. Angela shares why it's essential to give kids the space to be creative and make mistakes. As adults finding the balance between supporting and taking over is a fine line.
