Testimonials

I am more confident to try other ways of helping deaf children.

Teaching Assistant

Deafness

I have learned a great deal on how to support a pupil with VI and have been able to use this information in practice, e.g. new knowledge on additional low impact visual aids which I have now implemented for use in class to support Pupil X. I am more aware in how to meet the needs of the pupil and feel more confident in my day-to-day practice. I also found the case studies particularly informative and useful - these gave me a greater understanding of the needs of a VI pupil and how to meet them.

Vision Impairment

It helps you to focus on meeting each individual child's needs and requirements to access learning.

Qualified Teacher

Deafness

To plan my next steps (with an individual or a group) To help give effect on their academic achievements . . .. .t has given me the opportunity to evaluate progress against the outcomes. To develop intervention programmes to suit a childs needs.
The training course has been a stimulus for conversations with the teacher I work with and I have thought carefully about each of our children. Setting the goals and interventions was interesting: two I would automatically do and the third is a direct consequence of the training.

Teaching Assistant

Attachment and Trauma

There are many strategies and pieces of knowledge that I will take away from the course and apply to my role as SENCO.
This training has given me a more in-depth knowledge and understanding of VI, the causes and effectives of sight loss. Thus, it has helped me in my confidence and strategies in working with a young VI child.

Teaching Assistant

Vision Impairment

This training has been very beneficial for myself as someone who has recently started working at a special school and I have no experience of working with children with MSI. I can now take what I have learnt and improve my own practice.
