Annette Lambeth, Novel Approaches to Tackling Disadvantaged Learners

A general trend towards the progression of human societies is the development of services, programs and methods to help those most in need. The positive side of human history can be seen as an attempt to help reduce suffering and support people to help give them the best opportunities in life. This is particularly present in the education system. 100 years ago, learning disadvantages such as ADHD would not have been recognized or diagnosed, subjecting the children with it to having no hope of gaining anything from the education system. Whilst it is not perfect today, we have seen a marked climb towards improving the standards and methods of how we work with children with learning disadvantages, and for myself, Annette Godfrey Lambeth, has been the focus of my career and higher education.

If you'd like to find out more about my career and work in education follow the link here to Annette Lambeth - Be Determined. Today, people like myself continue to commit towards developing new and innovative approaches to helping children with learning disadvantages make the most out of their education. During my time at Immaculata University, I published what would go on to become a highly regarded paper, named “Learning Style preferences for Secondary Students identified with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.” What the paper aimed to explore was how we could incorporate new teaching methods into the classroom that not only allowed the brightest students to thrive fro the syllabus, but also those with disadvantages such as ADHD. The project, as is the aim of much of my work today, was to help level the playing field I education.

I, Annette Godfrey Lambeth, as well as others who work in my industry, believe that the next step education must make to benefit all is to be more inclusive to children of all abilities. To do so, we must retain the brightest talent in the industry and help support those who work so hard to support the children who need it most. It was with this in mind that I developed a  Special Education Summer Symposium in an effort to recruit, retain and support new teachers to the field of Special Education. The aim was to help teachers and industry professionals build on their skills and network with others to help build the vital support systems that help the industry thrive.
