On this course you will learn about some approaches that have created positive impacts on children’s academic progress.  Through practical activities and discussion you will have the chance to reflect on how you could use such approaches with your pupils.

You will:

  • Identify approaches for creating multiple opportunities to engage learners with special needs
  • Evaluate science projects that provide dynamic sensory experiences for the SEN child
  • Reflect on how you model and provoke language and questioning in your classes
  • Be able to recognise and record moments of engagement.
