About this course

An informative online workshop designed to help those with Deaf learners in their care to recognise and respond to the challenges faced by children with Sensory Processing Disorder.

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a neurological disorder in which the sensory information that the individual perceives results in abnormal responses.

It's reported that learners who are either HoH or Deaf are especially susceptible to SPD. This is because the inner ear affects the sense of balance and gravity and plays a major part in the processing of the other senses.

This workshop is essential viewing for SENDCos, teaching professionals and school leaders with Deaf learners in their care. It's been created to help you heighten your understanding of the condition and put key interventions to provide learners with the support they need.

During the last 18 months the role of the Language Service Provider (LSP) has changed due to Covid 19 and its variants. We have been working remotely for quite a long time and are now slowly getting back to working on a face-to-face basis.

This course will look at the notion and suggest that a Tribalism, Us -v- Them culture exists. We will discuss how it is that this situation could possibly occur and how we adopt various methods to prevent it happening. We will look at how to recognise the emergence of ‘tribes’ and how we, as professionals eradicate it and ensure that our co-working experience is more towards an all-inclusive way of working.

At the completion of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the following:

  • Have a better understanding of what Tribalism is:
  • Have a better understanding of the ‘red flags’ that identify where tribalism is occurring:
  • Have a knowledge of what constitutes a tribal environment and recognise the underlying causes:
