How can we best teach to a diversity of learning speeds?

Reported by EdSurge, while we utilize grade level and prerequisites to try and create a fairly even academic level within each of our classrooms so we can best teach to the mean, have we ignored thinking about learning speeds?

New learning science out of Oakland University suggests some of our slower learners might even be the most flexible, and our greatest problem solvers. Yet, the pace of a typical classroom might leave them behind.

The takeaway? Accommodation here can be another difficult challenge. But the level of learning diversity in our classrooms insists we at least acknowledge the different minds and processing in them.
