Testimonials

I think it has highlighted the need to take lots of small steps to ensure a pupil continues to make progress and evaluate our role/ interventions.

Advisory Teacher

Deafness

This training would be good as an introduction to new staff with little understanding of deafness.

Other Position

Deafness

It's given me a more in-depth knowledge of deafness and lots of ways to support a deaf student in school. The tips and strategies to use have been invaluable.

Other Position

Deafness

The training has taught me about dyslexia and how it impacts on children's learning at school. For example, when supporting a student in French lessons, it became clear that he could not understand new words that were introduced. A strategy to help with this is to use a visual aid when learning new vocabulary, e.g. a picture of a glass of orange juice and the French word for this written below.
This training has really made me think about my own setting and how we can use ideas that are shown to be beneficial for other children.

Other Position

Deafness

I'm now much more aware of the difficulties and barriers to learning that deaf pupils face on a daily basis. Being more able to identify when pupil A is struggling or not engaged in learning means I can give support or an intervention when it's needed. Pupil A is beginning to show more confidence with learning and speaking which has produced success that she very clearly enjoys!

Teaching Assistant

Deafness

Why I have finished so quickly is because I really enjoyed it. Learning lots of new things. It was just so good to be given ideas on how to support the children within our setting. I can't wait to use some of the ideas and put them into practice. I have spoken to my work colleges about things that I have learnt as we have a deaf child in every room. The information has helped them understand what helps the children as well. Unfortunately, I can’t work in every room in the nursery, but I have been feeding them the information as I have been learning it.

Senior Leader
