It really was fascinating thinking about how our senses help us learn, how we would feel if we didn't have those senses and how we would have to adapt. I feel it would greatly benefit the staff involved in the next academic year to do this course too.

Teaching Assistant
Multi-Sensory Impairment

I have also learnt how to break down tasks so it’s easier for the children to understand and easier to teach each stage at a time. I have been shown lots of activity ideas. I have learnt lots more that we will be using all the time and sharing with other staff.

Teaching Assistant
Motor Coordination Difficulties

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
Effective Teaching & Learning

I have learnt to always approach each lesson as if it is the first with your student. Always have a fresh start. I have learnt to control low level disruption immediately to avoid confrontation and escalating behaviour.

Teaching Assistant
Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

This training has made me consider how the children with MSI percieve the word around them. I am trying to eliminate unnecessary noise and visual distractions, repeating things when important and starting sentences with the child's name. I am thinking more about the needs of the child first.

Teacher
Multi-Sensory Impairment

This course has prepared me to take into account further considerations relating to the successful inclusion of children with VI. In particular, the strategies can be organised into a sort of checklist to be used when children with VI attend High School.

SENCO
Vision Impairment

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.

Other
Autistic Spectrum Disorder

I would recommend this training to anyone who is currently working with individuals with autistic spectrum disorders. It has provided me with a lot of factual information, such as the characteristics of ASD, and the behaviours of these characteristics and their causes. I particularly enjoyed the intervention module as it provided me with a wide range of strategies and intervention packages – some of these I had never heard of and am very excited to use within my own practice!

Early Years Practitioner
Autistic Spectrum Disorder

The three key things that I have learned are the difference between dyspraxia and developmental coordination disorder; the strategies of supporting pupils' motor skills, including modelling, shaping, chaining and prompting and the assessment record and motor skills difficulties checklists, which will enhance my interventions effectively.

Motor Coordination Difficulties

Self-esteem is a key element in helping all children to progress, but for those with dyslexia, low self-esteem will be a major barrier to progress. Helping them to accept that they have learning differences, but can achieve great things is key.

Teacher
Dyslexia

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.

Teaching Assistant
Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

The main outcome of taking part in the course has for me been to question how effective I am as a Teaching Assistant both in delivering my own lessons and in those lessons in which I support the class teacher. I have learnt how to approach my teaching in a variety of ways, and how by using different strategies with the children I work with I can improve their learning in a positive way.
