Exploring Experiences of Educators of Students With Bipolar Diagnoses

Project #252

Erin Richard

Summary:

The purpose of this study is to explore how support can be provided to educators in understanding how to incorporate strategies to diagnosed bipolar students. As educators, teachers are not able to diagnose a student with a medical condition; however, they are required to educate all students to the best of their abilities. By exploring and understanding the needs of the physical environment a student requires, teachers can begin to discuss strategies to approach successful learning opportunities for bipolar students.
