4 day SEND Course

4 DAY SEND COURSE

Following the success of the previous 4 day TA courses we relaunched the programme. The participants (which included a Deputy Head) felt the course was excellent for SENCo's as well as Teaching Assistants.

This course is designed for staff to further develop their knowledge and skills in working with a range of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Challenging Behaviour

The outcome of the 4 day training course will be to develop knowledge and understanding of children’s needs to enable children to make progress across all areas.

Course content includes:

· Awareness of Special Educational Needs & Disabilities such as ASD, ADHD, PDA, SEMH, Tourette Syndrome & SLCN

  • Practical strategies

· Writing Social Stories and using comic strip conversations

· Visual Strategies

· Sensory Processing

· Social Skills Groups

· Behaviour Management


The Course was originally linked to the Professional Standards for Teaching Assistants and includes activities to be carried out between sessions such as a small amount of research, observations and directed tasks with pupils.

The cost of this 4 day course is £325 which includes all course materials, lunch and refreshments
