Complex neurological disorders, including Dyspraxia, are often reported to be more prevalent amongst Deaf people, which is why we believe it’s important to cover these in the suite of courses and resources we offer.
Dyspraxia is a Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD) which affects organisation and planning of physical movement. The essential feature is the impairment of motor function that significantly interferes with academic achievement or activities of daily living.
This easy-to-access online workshop explores several interventions you can put in place to support the needs of Deaf/SEN learners and is designed to help you:
- Gain a clear understanding of what Dyspraxia is and how it can affect the development of age-appropriate skills.
- Grasp the complex challenges facing Deaf learners who also display neurological disorders such as Dyspraxia.
- Put interventions in place to support the development of learners who are displaying common presentations of Dyspraxia.
Deafness itself is not a learning disability. However, as complex neurological disorders are often reported to be more prevalent amongst young Deaf learners. Accessing learning and clearly understanding what’s expected of them can be particularly challenging, especially if they are Deaf and have special educational needs. Naturally, this can impact on behaviour in the classroom – particularly amongst younger children at the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS).
One of the primary ways to remove learning barriers amongst Deaf/SEN learners at this early stage in their educational journey is to introduce visual interventions into the classroom.
This easy-to-access online workshop explores several visual intervention strategies and is designed to help you:
- Understand the complex needs of Deaf learners who also display neurological disorders.
- Learn how to support positive behaviour in EYFS settings.
- Use visual signs and prompts to improve communication and promote positive behaviour.
