As SENCO in the school, I feel I now have more knowledge to support colleagues when asked questions about pupils in their class.

SENCO
Autism Spectrum Disorders

I strongly believe in the value of attachment theory and think it has significant application for us as educators. It has the capacity to help teachers better understand their students, be more attuned to their needs, respond to them more appropriately, be more empathic, interpret their behaviour with more accuracy and plan and develop better supports for them. If teachers can better understand their students and meet their needs, they will be supporting the student in their social, emotional, behavioural and cognitive growth and facilitating greater access to the curriculum. Forming positive, supportive relationships can assist students to develop the capacity for establishing secure attachments and have significant lasting impacts in their lives.

Teacher
Attachment and Trauma

I will now think twice before telling children to 'hurry up - you're always last!'. At milk drinking time and changing for PE I have stopped to analyse what the cause is before saying anything this term.

Teacher
Motor Coordination Difficulties

The ABC intervention was interesting for me and I think this is the section I have taken the most from. I have met some challenging behaviour in classes and this has helped me to understand and identify the types of behaviour and the triggers for it. Within my class I now sit back and think about the types of behaviour and look beyond them to see if I can identify the antecedent and prevent it from happening. I have enjoyed this and have seen a great improvement in my current class.

Teacher
Effective Teaching & Learning

Following on from this training I have had discussions with the classroom teacher on how I can carry out interventions that are directly linked to and support the individual targets set out in each student's IEP. I believe this will have a significant impact on outcomes as my work in the classroom will be more focused and targeted.

Effective Teaching & Learning

Self-esteem is a key element in helping all children to progress, but for those with dyslexia, low self-esteem will be a major barrier to progress. Helping them to accept that they have learning differences, but can achieve great things is key.

Teacher
Dyslexia

I think this course is a good reminder of all the factors that need to be considered when making sure that the learner has access to the curriculum. A key factor is ensuring that the environment that the learner is supposed to learn in is conducive to learning.

Qualified Teacher of Multi Sensory Impairment
Multi-Sensory Impairment

The setting of these goals enabled me to focus on the areas in which the child needed support and to set aside time to work individually with him. I have used this in my practice with other children, identifying areas which need support and providing short one to one small group sessions to address these.

Teaching Assistant
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

This training has had a huge impact on how I communicate and teach learners with SLCN. I can identify individual learners needs and adapt lessons so that they can understand the tasks given to complete, feel confident in their own abilities and not be afraid to ask for help when needed.

Teaching Assistant
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

The training has made me review interventions in conjunction with learning theory. This is a much more focused approach and I will be able to use it again in the future. I like to work with SMART target setting, as it helps me stay driven, so every opportunity to practise this is valuable.

Education Consultant
Effective Teaching & Learning

It has been a considerable time since I completed this course and have been able to use what I have learned supporting Child B with a number of other children with varying degrees of need since. My practice is now more informed and I am much more confident in my own ability to support the children.

HLTA
Dyslexia

I can write more specific targets using SMART after the face to face training. My tutor used the example of an iceberg which was helpful in understanding underlying difficulties to aid target writing.
