Support Persons with Disabilities through Effective Strategies

Recommend course:

Description

Teaching is not a cookie-cutter approach. Neither can teachers work in silos. Teaching is a science and an art. The science of teaching looks at the principles that underpin various teaching strategies and their relationship with different disability types. The art in teaching involves taking a transdisciplinary approach in working with different Allied Professionals. When the science and art are integrated in practice, persons with disabilities are adequately supported in having their needs met.

This workshop explores a range of strategies to promote interactions and learning among children. Through interactive discussions and case reviews, you will examine how strategies are used in relation to the types of disabilities and the teachers and Allied Professionals collaborate in the interest of the child in the transdisciplinary approach to learning.
