SEN Teaching Delivery for Students Level 2

Course Description

The course reviews and explores effective methods for teaching SEN students with social, behavioural and emotional difficulties (SBED). It discusses the influence of developmental psychology, learner behaviour, genetics and environmental (contextual) factors on learning when SBED exists, as well as useful SEN-SBED therapeutic and interventional techniques.

The course also teaches techniques used for reliably identifying, assessing and characterising SBED expressions in young learners. It additionally offers guidelines and contemporary methods for effective SEN-SBED classroom management.

The schedule also includes cultural activities that will allow participants to explore and experience Irish culture and the vibrant city of Dublin.
