  • Making extra time meaningful
  • Communication issues and strategies
  • Using simple ICT as an aid to learning
  • General learning environment strategies (linked to sensory issues) Using visual communication tools to aid behavioural social and emotional understanding

Course Outcomes

This training is supported by some extremely useful film footage and a number of workshop activities.  At these sessions there are a wealth of books and resources available for reference.  These are fun, informative and effective workshops which not only show your team how to work more effectively with a range of learners, but gives them knowledge and understanding of the conditions and therefore identify triggers to negative behaviour.  This deeper knowledge allows them to feel confident in creating interventions.
