The Dangers of Access to Work (AtW) and Fraud

The Dangers of Access to Work (AtW) and Fraud

Access to Work (AtW) is an initiative from the Department of Works and Pension. The Deaf community as a whole have greatly benefited from accessing funding to ensure they are on an equal footing with their hearing counterparts.

This course looks at the ways people have exploited the system to benefit themselves.

The course has been designed to demonstrate and show the dangers of making fraudulent claims. At the completion of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the following:

  • Have a better understanding of the process of making a claim.
  • Have a knowledge of what is a legitimate and what is not a legitimate claim.
  • Have a ‘tool kit’ that you can carry with you when working within the AtW domain.
  • Recognise the possibility of a fraudulent claim before it is submitted.
  • Know how to follow up a suspected false claim for AtW funding.
  • …and much, much more.

Dyspraxia

Dyspraxia

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.

Visual Interventions for Promoting Positive Behaviour in EYFS

Visual Interventions for Promoting Positive Behaviour in EYFS

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.
