Are you interested in working with people who have special needs, especially when it comes to dealing with their education? Would you like to experience the amazing feeling of knowing that you have helped an individual with specific needs to overcome adversity and to be able to teach them brand new skills? If so, then our Special Education Needs course will be perfect for any individual seeking a brand new career change allowing you to work within this field to a satisfactory standard.
Introduction to the SEND Course
Our SEND course consists of 22 individual modules that will take you through the entire process of teaching individuals with special needs. The course is designed to provide you with the tools that you will require in order to make a difference to how individuals are taught, and give you a better understanding of their requirements and the challenges they face.
By the end of the course you will be asked to take a test in order to show that you have understood the information provided throughout the various modules. This will then give you the knowledge to be able to work within this field.
What you will learn
Each module is designed to give you a real insight into the Special Education Needs industry from start to finish.
In addition, the modules will also cover the relevant code of practice that any practitioner within this field needs to be aware of to ensure that potentially vulnerable individuals are being taught in the correct manner.
As you move further into the course, you will be taken through various disabilities, both physical and mental, to provide you with a better understanding of how to handle their issues allowing them to make better progress than ever before. There will also be specific details on issues such as autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD, due to the complexities surrounding the handling of these issues.
Furthermore, our Special Education Needs course is designed to help you deal with issues that may arise at various times, including anger from the individuals you are dealing with on a daily basis. This is regarded as being an important skill for any educator to have at their disposal due to the nature of the work that they do, hence it being given its own module to give you the best possible insight into handling that situation. We will also provide you with information on psychological issues and behaviours to give you an all-round understanding of their needs.
Finally, you will be taught the latest and best teaching methods and strategies for this particular field, allowing you to better prepare each and every lesson to make sure that the individuals will be able to get the absolute most out of each session. Once the course is completed, you will be better placed to work within this field and able to handle any situation that may arise throughout your working day.
