How can struggling students attain and maintain a solid level of academic performance? WIRED DIFFERENTLY: My School Journey is a valuable resource that “helps parents and students understand and support their children’s learning issues and behaviors by providing concrete strategies to help children reach their full potential,” according to Dr. Abby Baker a renowned Philadelphia-based psychologist and assessment expert. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), a sector of the U.S. Department of Education, 84 percent of Black students lack proficiency in mathematics and 85 percent of Black students lack proficiency in reading skills. How do we begin to improve the academic performance of these youth?
This book helps students, parents and professionals work together to overcome the stigma associated with “Learning Differently.” University of Maryland star basketball player Donta Scott draws upon his personal experiences to cover special education related topics. He provides clear, sound and practical advice for parents seeking guidance.
Most importantly, Scott emphasizes the importance of fighting for educational help. He provides a personal roadmap for young Black boys and other youth trying to achieve a healthy balance between accomplishing academic goals and meeting social and emotional needs.
“I’ve been doing this so long, there have been so many great stories,” said Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon. “But this is one of the all-time great stories. Where he is now, and hopefully where he can end up.”
