Special needs in Education
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 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.
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.
One of the goals of Erasmus+ is sharing of teacher experiences and discussing examples of good practice. For that reason, teachers analyse and compare examples of inclusion of children with SEN from different countries’ school systems.
