Special needs and Inclusion in Education is an Erasmus+ KA1 course designed to equip teachers with tools, knowledge and strategies used with students with disabilities.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Special Needs in Education
Adjust Curriculum to Specific Needs of Individual Students
Creating a proper and supportive learning environment for special needs children presents a true challenge for educators. It requires a detailed knowledge of how the students’ learning needs should be addressed and how to support them in their educational path. In our Erasmus teacher training course participants learn how to recognize the specifics of students with SEN, gifted students as well as students with disabilities. Following this, according to their needs, educators plan teaching and learning strategies. The emphasis is on students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder/visual motor deficit, ADHD and identifying the causes of their difficulty in mastering school materials and the necessary adjustments.
Implement Digital Technologies in Special Needs Education
Technology is continuously improving and teachers can now take advantage of this. There is ICT that is developed especially for children with special needs. According to the children’s needs, teachers learn how to identify barriers of the use of digital technologies and how to choose the technology that suits the students best.
