Promoting Positive Behaviour and Positive Behavioural Support (PBS)
With figures suggesting that around 2-4% of Deaf children are also autistic, this course has been developed to promote successful inclusion of learners with neurological conditions such as Autism, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, ADD and related disorders, whilst fully meeting the needs of their peers. This easy-to-access online workshop focuses on Promoting Positive Behaviour and Positive Behavioural Support (PBS). Learn at your own pace about the causes of challenging behaviour in the classroom, investigate the triggers and implement preventative interventions.
What does this course cover?
Supporting teachers of Deaf learners who have neurological conditions such as Autism.This course provides an overview of how the impairments affecting learners with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism/Asperger) and/or ADHD may cause them to behave negatively (this is also very useful for understanding a range of learners' needs including Deaf and neurotypical). It examines of the root causes and triggers behind negative behaviour and how to identify and avoid them.
What outcomes can you expect from this course?
Completing this course will help you to develop strategies and interventions for adapting your sensory environment to meet the behavioural needs of a range of learners.
The training is supported by useful film footage and several workshop activities which are fun, informative, and effective. Together these will support you and your team to:
- Work more effectively with a range of learners.
- Gain knowledge and understanding of the conditions and therefore identify triggers to negative behaviour.
- Feel confident in creating interventions.
What can you expect to gain from completing this online course?
You will develop a range of strategies for promoting positive behaviour through effective practice including:
- Making extra time meaningful.
- Developing strategies to address communication issues.
- Using simple ICT to aid learning.
- Improving learning environments (linked to sensory issues) and using visual communication tools to aid behavioural social and emotional understanding.
- Deploying a range of structured, multisensory motivational strategies/teaching and learning methods and visual interventions designed to improve learning skills and general in class understanding.
- Effectively implementing Social Stories and other Visual Interventions.
Who is the course for?
This course is designed for education professionals, teaching staff, support staff and SENDCos in primary and secondary.

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.
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.
