Case Studies and Workshop Activities

  • This training is supported by a range of case studies and workshop activities during which each delegate will learn to:
  • Better understand the needs of individuals who may be Gifted/Talented/Able.
  • Create differentiated, level of understanding appropriate interventions.
  • Adapt the sensory environment to meet the needs of individuals and groups of individuals.

Following the training

  • At the conclusion of the training there will be an optional follow up activity set (homework).  This is a great opportunity to practice the skills learnt on the day and to investigate interventions for individual cases.

This is a fun, informative and effective workshop which enables the delegates to work more effectively with a range of individuals, and instils a deeper knowledge allowing them to feel confident in creating interventions.
