Gil Tippy Has a Simple Mind, Part 2

16 Jan

 

This is Part 2 of a lecture I gave at the Rebecca School in which I talk about how to add symbolism, on the way to abstraction, in all parts of out interactions with our kids, our patients, and our consumers. It doesn’t really matter if you are a teacher at a school for “neuro-typical” kids, or are working with adults with developmental challenges, the idea that, “one thing can stand for another thing” is the foundation of all of our academics and communication. In the first part, I tell some illustrative stories, particularly about my daughter’s experience at her Waldorf School, and the lecture will make much more sense if you watch all the parts in order.
