Event description

Description

The training in Special Educational Needs is designed for teachers, teaching assistants, tutors and shadows. It is given in English. The training programme consists of a series of study days that can all be booked individually.

The study day on dyspraxia will start by looking at what the participants understand by the term ‘dyspraxia’ and then consider diagnostic definitions of dyspraxia.

We will look at the areas of difficulty that be encountered in the areas of fine motor skills, gross motor skills, organisation and communication by children who are diagnosed as being dyspraxic. We look at the typical development of children’s fine and gross motor skills so that participants understand when they should refer children (and their parents) to other professionals.

We will experiment with learning some new fine motor skills so that participants are better equipped to understand children who are finding it frustrating to learn new skills and can respond helpfully to these children.

We will consider the specific skills that go into learning to write, including handwriting and organisational skills. Strategies for teaching writing skills will be explored and some resources will also be discussed. We will also look at some tips for teaching left-handed children new skills if you are a right-handed adult, and vice versa.

In the afternoon, we will look in detail at how to break down common tasks, such as catching a ball, into small steps.

Finally, we will consider visual spatial skills briefly and how to identify when a child might be struggling in this area of development and require more assessment.

Lunch, refreshments and a workbook are all provided.

Bookings can also be made by invoice through www.inclusion4all.com/training
