Congratulations to Janine Bailey and Linda Dillashaw, at Rockingham Middle School in VA. These fine ladies have been implementing a Peer Mentoring Program. You are impacting the Montevideo community for the better according to Kristina Zaccaria. She has said that it is an AMAZING program.😍
Peer mentors work on Competent Learner Model (CLM) goals with students helping to demonstrate goals across environments and with people other than teachers.
All CLM Implementers around the world should read this article about Peer Mentoring that was developed by CLMers.
This conference took place this past Saturday, November 11th, and the objective was “to provide families the medical, legal, and educational information about the services and rights of their children with different abilities.”
This year, Tucci Learning Solutions had once again the opportunity to participate providing information about our program and services to the community. We also had a workshop session which was presented by Nancy Kelley and Cynthia Valencia, and we helped out with childcare. We were informed that the event was a total success so we want to take a minute and THANK our wonderful staff from the South County for all of your help.
Attached are pictures from this year’s conference in Soledad. ENJOY!!!!
The rest of the TUCCi team ran childcare for approximately 15-20 kids. They all had a great time!Nancy Kelley – I am grateful for our South County Staff who are the most collaborative, loyal, hardworking group who also love to laugh!

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – The parents of children with autism say their needs can fall through the cracks in South Carolina – especially if their families don’t have the insurance coverage they need to pay for expensive treatments.
A bill in the State House now aims to expand insurance coverage for those with autism. Autism advocates are pushing for it to pass, but …
If you are interested in viewing the possible outcomes of CLM Programming, watch the video, Case Studies.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education produced the following video to document the effects of the CLM. An observer is provided with an opportunity to view how 8 naive learners acquire the competencies to perform successfully in their learning environments (school, home, and community) over the course of a year. Each Case Study illustrates the benefits to each learner and his/her instructors who are implementing the CLM. Parents, Teachers, Para-professionals, and Administrators talk about how the CLM has positively impacted their learners and their learning environments.
Teaching children according to their individual “learning style” does not achieve better results and should be ditched by schools in favour of evidence-based practice, according to leading scientists.
Thirty eminent academics from the worlds of neuroscience, education and psychology have signed a letter to the Guardian voicing their concern about the popularity of the learning style approach among some teachers.
