SEN stands for special educational needs. These educational methods are used for kids with special needs such as autism, dyslexia, and visual impairments just to name a few. Though every child has a right to public education in any institute they want, not all teachers are adequately prepared or trained to cater for their needs. This fully accredited SEN Teaching Assistant Diploma course is designed to help you become an ideal teaching assistant to all children.
The course is divided into three parts and starts with an introduction to SEN where you will discover your role as a teacher. Furthermore, you will find out more about SEN code of practices and gain an understanding on SENCO. You will also get tips on management strategies for SEN classrooms, dealing with pupils that suffer from a variety of conditions, understand the difficulties they face and so much more. The next section introduces SEN in the USA where you learn about principles of special education and the SEN curriculum. Next, you look into ADHD, its causes, diagnosis, treatment and reasonable adjustments needed.
Becoming a SEN teaching assistant requires great dedication, knowledge, skills and strategies; and this course is sure enough to bring out these traits from you.
