Diminishing Returns:

Increase Productivity and Profits in Classroom, Gym & Recess

ADHD, Autism, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Developmental Delay, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Learning Disablity, Sensory Processing Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Technology Addictions…today’s students are different! Technology overuse is resulting in disabilities that the health and education systems are only beginning to detect, much less understand. Printing, reading and attention delays are the norm, with an ever widening gap in developmental level and consequent skill performance. With a ranking of 15th on the world stage for literacy, Canadian and U.S. schools are faced with making crucial decisions regarding changes to not only classroom, gym and playground environments, but also to curriculum programming, teacher education, as well as revisions to school policies and structures. The educational empire is on the decline, as returns on investments in education of children continue to diminish.

The Goal

Diminishing Returns raises awareness regarding the diversity of today’s student population, and offers specific and immediate solutions that parents, teachers, principals and government can implement in order to adequately address this growing concern.
