Whilst it is becoming more widely accepted in mainstream education that every teacher is a teacher of SEND, do we all have the confidence to make this a reality? This programme will aim to empower teachers to embed a range of strategies which specifically target their students with SEND.
There will be a focus on the most common disorders and difficulties seen in students with SEND in mainstream education. These are: dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and speech and language disorders. The first session will be delivered in-person by Whole School SEND. We will instil a sense of purpose behind why we need to do more for our students with any of these disorders or difficulties. We will review the SEND Code of Practice and learn about each specific disorder. Delegates will pick a student/selection of students or a class who they teach. They will become the focus during the programme.
In the remaining sessions we will cover a carefully selected range of strategies which can be used in the classroom. Each session will host expert colleagues speaking from experience and a solid evidence-base. The ‘buddy system’ will allow delegates to nurture opportunities for collaboration, coaching and accountability. Delegates will trial a small sample of these strategies specifically targeted at their chosen class or student(s). We will be careful to ensure that during this programme “less is more” and that delegates are supported in finding the most appropriate strategy for their students which can be embedded into their practice.
The programme is designed for all primary and secondary school teachers. We will be using the ‘buddy system’ which means you will be partnered up with someone working in the same phase as you. In addition to this, there will be opportunities for cross-phase conversations.
