I will now think twice before telling children to 'hurry up - you're always last!'. At milk drinking time and changing for PE I have stopped to analyse what the cause is before saying anything this term.

Dyspraxia and Motor Coordination Difficulties

I am more flexible and understanding in my approach while working towards goals because I better understand the challenges and needs of the child in terms of possible learning barriers.

I am looking at using some of the resources to develop some new communication aids to work with older children on the ASD spectrum and there are plans for us to look at putting on some type of support group in the school holidays for our older children.

The ABC intervention was interesting for me and I think this is the section I have taken the most from. I have met some challenging behaviour in classes and this has helped me to understand and identify the types of behaviour and the triggers for it. Within my class I now sit back and think about the types of behaviour and look beyond them to see if I can identify the antecedent and prevent it from happening. I have enjoyed this and have seen a great improvement in my current class.

Learning Strategies

From implemented strategies, progress has already been seen to happen - demonstrating the usefulness of this training and the theory behind learning and classroom assessments and interventions.

The course has made me more aware of the needs of a pupil with a hearing impairment and the barriers that they face in every day life. Full inclusion is the key to a pupil's progress and happiness in a mainstream setting.

Hearing Impairment

This training has had a huge impact on how I communicate and teach learners with SLCN. I can identify individual learners needs and adapt lessons so that they can understand the tasks given to complete, feel confident in their own abilities and not be afraid to ask for help when needed.

Teaching Assistant
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Improved my knowledge of ASD, and having the conversation with the tutor gave me more insight into working and long term memory of children with ASD. I've adapted how I give instructions with some of the children.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

The training has made me review interventions in conjunction with learning theory. This is a much more focused approach and I will be able to use it again in the future. I like to work with SMART target setting, as it helps me stay driven, so every opportunity to practise this is valuable.

Education Consultant
Learning Strategies

I feel that I have a better understanding of just how much the classroom environment and resources can affect a student’s willingness and ability to learn. Furthermore, although I have always been aware that certain students do not accept praise, especially in front of their peers, I had never thought to say things like "I have enjoyed working with you/this group this lesson." and have always relied on sending praise postcards home.

Teaching Assistant
Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

This training has highlighted some of the potential problems associated with dealing with ASD in the classroom. It has given me a deeper understanding, not only of the problems facing students with ASD, but also a useful range of strategies to help find practical solutions to help and give these students full access to the curriculum.

Teacher
Autism Spectrum Disorder

I have monitored and been more observant of what has been happening in the classroom and outside, I’ve been more persistent and consistent. This has had a much bigger and positive outcome for the children I work with.
