About this course
A valuable online workshop designed to help teaching professionals to understand what dyspraxia is and how they can put interventions in place to meet the needs of learners who are affected by it.
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.
Deaf/SEN learners who have Dyspraxia will naturally find learning in school extremely demanding. This online course has been designed to help teaching professionals to identify and understand Dyspraxic behaviours and put effective interventions in place to support the complex needs of learners coping with this challenging disorder.

When we think about sexual health, we might automatically think of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) and getting ourselves checked for these at a Sexual Health clinic however, sexual health is much more than that. It’s about sexual identity, the law, consent, contraception, abuse and how we conduct ourselves in relationships.
This session will provide a background to all the elements mentioned above with an emphasis on both the fun and serious aspects of sex as well as a look at what goes on in a Sexual Health clinic. We will explore different LGBTQIA+ terms and definitions.
At the completion of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the following:
- Gain a clearer understanding of sexual health matters.
- Gain a better knowledge of the procedures within a sexual health clinic.
- Gain a better knowledge of LGBTQIA+ terms and definitions.
- Understand the concept of ‘sex posiitve’ and the exploration of a healthy and realistic attitude to sex.
- Understand the role of the Interpreter in a sexual health setting.
- …and much, much more.
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.
For all young people, entering adulthood can be a difficult time both emotionally and practically. For Deaf people though, these challenges can be greatly compounded and overwhelming.
This engaging online course is designed to help teaching professionals with Deaf learners in their care to better understand the barriers that their learners may face as they move beyond adolescence. It sets out to raise awareness by exploring several key challenges, including lack of specialised information, navigating higher education or work options, and dealing with imposed low expectations.
Informed by first-hand experience, the course has been developed to provide you with an inside view of the key barriers facing Deaf learners at this time. It sets out to help you develop tools to build their confidence and provide meaningful support by:
- Raising your understanding of the potential barriers facing Deaf learners as they transition to adulthood.
- Helping you support them as they move into higher education settings.
- Helping to ensure they have the life skills needed to make their way in the adult world.
- …and much, much more.
