Are you a professional looking for independent CPD in supporting children and young people with special educational needs?
In addition to teachers and teaching assistants, our courses are taken by family support workers, therapists and other professionals in the voluntary and community sectors.
Our paid courses are CPD certified for 20 hours learning, and will help you to:
- understand how to differentiate learning to meet the individual needs of students with SEN
- recognise triggers and sensitivities
- manage challenging behaviours
- foster the wellbeing of pupils
- give pupils the confidence to set high standards and reach their full potential
Listening and learning from the wonderful learners describing how they feel, how they see, how they learn has been invaluable. Making small changes to enable our learners to have the same opportunity to succeed as their peers. Understanding what we can do as educators to best support our learners with Autism. Understanding it's the environment and communication that needs to be tweaked - reasonable adjustments need to be put into place to enable same access to same information just delivered in a different way. Thinking about how you can teach through visual communication rather than too much talk. This has been a great training tool and I am super pleased I have been able to access. Thank you.
