“This course has reinforced my strong belief that good mental health & well-being is key to everybody in society. When we have the tools to be able to help & support both others and ourselves, we can be equipped to look at strategies to offer support and guidance in times of need.
“Because hearing loss is invisible, it is difficult to understand just how much it can affect a child’s day-to-day life and lifelong potential. However, it is accepted that children who have a hearing loss are at educational risk. Parents, teachers, audiologists and other professionals should work together with the child, to understand the hearing loss and to advocate for their listening needs. This training provides information and resources about how hearing loss can impact listening, learning as well as the possible social impact of hearing loss. Thank you
“The training has had an impact on outcomes by helping me develop a better understanding on how to help and develop my pupil’s learning especially in communication. It has also given me different activities to try and help them focus more
“Even though I have a deaf son, I was confident with hearing aids etc however it has helped me become more aware of the importance of how I can make the classroom a deaf friendly environment
“This training has provided me with a much greater insight into how to help children with visual impairment. I have learnt a great deal about the science behind different visual impairments and have developed a great number of strategies for helping VI children, which I will continue to implement. I found the second face-to-face (Teams) session very useful for how to set appropriate, and achievable, SMART goals.
“I am currently working with two children who suffer with severe anxiety, this course has enabled me to build on existing skills and strategies I have in place. Improving my classroom/ teaching practice. A valuable course, thank you
“I feel the course has given me a greater confidence to support children with challenging behaviour. It was a very interesting and a useful course giving a variety of strategies to use in the classroom, classroom management and the classroom environment. The case studies were very informative too.
“This training would be good as an introduction to new staff with little understanding of hearing impairments.
