ABOUT THIS COURSE

Help students overcome diversity in their educational needs through your knowledge of how to teach them to grow as students and individuals


Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students who need your help?

As we continue to improve in our ability to identify students with learning disabilities and diverse needs, the importance of individuals who are trained to help these students increases. Students with special educational needs require special services in order to perform in the classroom and grow as students and individuals. That is why schools are always looking for talented individuals who can provide their students with the appropriate interventions to help them succeed.

  • Are you patient?
  • Do you like working with children?
  • Do you have a passion for education?
  • Do you want to make a difference?

If you answer positively to any of these questions, then this is the career for you.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Our online Special Educational Needs course is specifically designed to provide you with everything that you need to make a difference in the lives of these children, including:

  • An overview of Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • Methods of observation and intervention
  • Teaching strategies
  • SEN in early childhood
  • SEN in middle childhood and adolescence
  • Analysis of mild to severe disabilities
  • SEN law
  • Case studies

Regardless of whether you are looking for your first career or you are looking for a new career, our online Special Educational Needs course can help you. Working with students with social, learning, and physical disabilities is extremely rewarding, and can make you feel proud and fulfilled in your career.

 

This course is recommended for individuals who want to pursue a career in special needs education (SEN)

  • It’s also excellent training for volunteers, or anyone who works with children with learning or physical disabilities
  • For family or friends of children with disabilities, to help them understand communication and learning best practices

After completing this course, you could:

  • Assist in Special Needs classrooms, helping teachers keep the highest standard of education and care 
  • Continue your education in Special Educational Needs, towards becoming a teacher yourself 
  • Volunteer with Special Needs children, knowing that you are able to provide a better level of care than other volunteers without this specialized knowledge

This was heaven sent and it has helped me to transition to where I want to be today. Marianella Morales - United States

Course modules are very informative I am currently taking a Special Needs course (I work as a Sub in my local school district for SEN students).

I came across the course, and as a teacher, I know that I will have some students in 2017 that have dyslexia and adhd. I was certain that this course could help me be a better teacher.

I've learned a lot about the different educational needs my learners can have, and it has made me more aware of issues relating to my learners. Anzel du Plessis - South Africa
