Part of our Online Teaching webinar series, this session addresses the specific needs of students with cognitive, sensory and social-emotional challenges.
Many teachers are struggling to know how to best support their students with disabilities and differences as we transition to remote teaching. This online webinar will provide practical evidence-based strategies for supporting learners with diverse learning needs.
We will focus on using effective digital teaching strategies and supports to assist students with cognitive, sensory and social-emotional challenges. This will include supporting students with specific language difficulties, autism and intellectual disabilities in accessing your virtual classrooms. In addition to the sharing advice and resources, there will also be the opportunity for our participants to share their stories and to ask questions about specific challenges they are facing.
Who Should Attend?
Mainstream and specialist Primary and Secondary teachers.
School leaders and learning leaders.
