We see different as positive

Too often, the education community “sees” students with different learning abilities as problems that require solutions. We are calling on special education educators to help usher in a new approach to teaching students with disabilities—one that sees the diversity of learning abilities as a positive.

As part of this approach, we define “different” as representing the limitless potential in all students. We defend “different” to any who don’t yet know the power of individuality. And we deliver “different” in our programs and content, utilizing actionable data to unlock the unique potential in every learner.

Our Approach
Define Different

We ALL learn differently, and it’s a good thing we do. At HMH®, we don’t try to define “different” with a single sentence. Instead, we embrace multiplicity and create learning experiences that celebrate differences.

Defend Different

You see your learners as they are: unique, brilliant individuals. So do we. Help everyone see what we see, and join us as we advocate for difference and foster learning for all.

Deliver Different

Powerful data and teacher tools are the difference between delivering a lesson plan and delivering personalized learning. By utilizing the best of technology and research, we help you craft different learning experiences to match the needs of every student and unlock their unique potential.
