OUR COURSES & WEBINARS
Deaf Minds Education
Our courses support the professional development of school and college leaders and staff. Every Deaf Minds Education course, resource and support service, whether delivered online or in-school, is designed to provide the knowledge and tools needed to:
- Gain a deeper understanding of the challenges facing Deaf learners in mainstream education and learn how best to support them.
- Develop early intervention strategies to pre-empt and tackle issues around mental health and wellbeing, including depression and anxiety.
- Provide Deaf learners with the emotional bedrock needed to succeed in a 'hearing learning environment'.
For many years, educators, who work with Deaf and hard of hearing students, have expressed their concern about their students not processing in academics as their peers. Many Deaf learners have difficulty understanding the concepts of mathematics, which makes it challenging to do well in school. This informative workshop has been developed to help SENDCos, teachers and school leaders to develop strategies for learners with Dyscalculia, including those who are Deaf, as part of a broader neurodiversity intervention programme. This workshop has been designed to help you:
- Understand what Dyscalculia is and how to define it.
- Develop awareness of other coexisting disorders which may be present.
- Conceptualise symbols in maths.
- Make the maths lesson accessible.
- Use colours to make conceptual connections.
- Investigate and evaluate a range of concrete resources to help contextualise maths.
- Use technology and online maths games.
This invaluable on-demand workshop has been developed to support SEND teachers as part of a graduated approach to teaching young learners with diverse neurological needs.
During the workshop, SEND specialist, Andrew Whitehouse takes you through the background of the condition and briefly introduces the interventions you can implement to support the needs of learners with ADHD.
It offers structured guidance on:
- How to approximately calculate the attention span of a child with ADHD and related conditions.
- How to extend the attention span of a learner with ADHD by using special interests.
- The difference between an attention seeking and an attention needing behaviour and how teaching professionals can effectively intervene.
- Effective strategies for assisting learners with ADHD in completing tasks.
- Assisting with difficulties such as short-term memory and organisational challenges.
This engaging course has been developed to support the mental wellbeing of Teachers of the Deaf. It aims to help those responsible for meeting the needs of Deaf learners to reduce the increased stress levels often associated with working in emotionally challenging educational settings by:
- Developing an understanding of the benefits of mindfulness.
- Promoting scientifically proven benefits and uses for practising mindfulness.
- Cultivating self-awareness.
- Remaining centred during times of stress.
- Developing strategies to deal with difficult emotions.
- Creating a mindful outlook.
Bereavement Preparation for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
This informative workshop has been developed to help SENDCos, teachers and school leaders to support young learners during, or leading up to a period of bereavement. It offers guidance on facilitating effective strategies and interventions, during what is likely to be one of the most emotional events in the life of a child with SEND.
It's specifically designed to equip school communities to support the complex emotional needs of children with SEND by:
- Helping them cope with or prepare for the death of a loved one.
- Developing a sensitive support strategy that reflects the way that EYFS learners with SEND process complex and upsetting events in their lives.
- Supporting the emotional needs of learners in your care during what will be an extremely difficult time for them.
- Creating a caring environment which ensures good mental health is safeguarded during or leading up to the process of bereavement.
Our mission is to bridge the gap between the hearing and the Deaf worlds with a view to reduce the frequency of mental health conditions and suicide within our Deaf community.
- We can achieve this by providing families and professionals with the guidance they need to fully understand the implications of being Deaf in a hearing world.
- We aim to support the wellbeing of Deaf children and adolescents by providing information and education to those supporting them.
