Abstract/Notes: Awes, AMI trainer at the elementary level, carefully explains how children inherit the potential for language and how its acquisition is virtually guaranteed. All typical children, regardless of culture, will at a given moment come to speak their native language. Montessori found that the absorbent mind, sensitive periods, and human tendencies assist in this acquisition. In contrast, written language does not come naturally to human beings. Children will not develop writing and reading without some degree of direct experience, preparation, and instruction—and this is where obstacles experienced may manifest themselves as dyslexia.

Abstract/Notes: In the report summarizing the results, Jackie Cossentino, MLC member, indicated that the area of professional development most requested by teachers is working with children with learning differences, including children on the autism spectrum.(Other areas of professional development Montessori teachers expressed a need for were reading and writing, observation, math, science, parent/community engagement, nature/ environment, peace education, social studies, Grace and Courtesy, Practical Life, Sensorial, art, gifted students, English-language learners, serving lowincome students, and state standards.) The Special Education Endorsement Task Force is preparing a survey, expanding upon the MLC survey, that we hope will provide more information regarding perceptions among our AMS community of 14,000 members about working with students with special needs in our Montessori classrooms as well as professional-development needs related to special education.The area of professional development most requested by Montessori teachers is working with children with learning differences, including children on the autism spectrum.

Abstract/Notes: Presented are case histories of two Down's Syndrome (Mosaic form) 6- and 10-year-old girls who attended regular Montessori classes. General characteristics of Down's Syndrome and other retarded children are reviewed and compared with the two girls' growth and development (according to Piaget's proposed stages). The Montessori emphasis on sensorial activities and on individual freedom to choose tasks is seen to enhance the retarded child's development. Analyzed are the girl's progress in such skill areas as language, reading, and math. The children are said to be functioning in Piaget's preconceptual and intuitive stages. Emphasized is the need for an approach which includes raised social and academic expectations along with instruction in independence and self-direction. An appendix lists suggested Montessori materials and activities for handicapped children.

Abstract/Notes: Sara Suchman is the founder and executive director of the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector. As attention shifts to how to meet each and every learner with what they need and how to help students build the social-emotional skills they need to thrive, Montessori schools have been doing just this for decades. Often seen as a private school offering catering to the elite, Montessori education has in fact thrived in limited public settings and in serving low-income students. Sara will speak to what is the reach of Montessori schools in the public sphere, what are the broader barriers to spreading the impact, and what her vision is for a more widespread and accessible Montessori education and how her organization is helping this vision solidify.
