About this course
A valuable online workshop designed to help teaching professionals support Deaf/SEN learners at one of the most formative stages of their educational lives.
During the Early Years Foundation Stage, children are at a level where they are likely to be progressing faster than at any other time during their educational journey. It's a huge process for learners, with lots of information to absorb as teachers focus on preparing them for the stages in their education to come.
Deaf/SEN learners who display disruptive or negative behaviours at this stage in their education are externalising their need to feel secure, understood in their educational surroundings and communicated with in a manner that meets their needs. The challenge for teaching professionals is to de-code this behaviour, understand its origins and put effective interventions in place to support learners. The visual interventions covered in this workshop are just one example of this.
What does this 'Visual Interventions for Promoting Positive Behaviour in EYFS' course cover?
This engaging on-demand workshop is designed to help teaching professionals understand the challenges facing Deaf/SEN learners and develop visual interventions that make learning more accessible to them. During the workshop, we'll explore several areas including:
- The reasons that behaviour management is NOT about dealing with issues they arise.
- How to avoid behavioural issues and incidents by understanding the challenges facing Deaf/SEN learners and avoiding the triggers of challenging behaviour in the first place. These might be the simplest of things like a lack of clear and easy to read visual information.
- Why are visuals so important, where do they fit in, and how do you put them in place?
- Comparing visual and auditory reaction times.

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.

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.
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.
