Most Childcare Practitioners also work as Special Educational Needs (SEN) Assistants. Whether that be in a school or care setting. Secondary schools usually have learning support departments where teaching assistants work with individuals or small groups of pupils to complement work being done in class.
During this course, you will explore key legislation governing practice, different types of SEN and how you can understand, support and provide for children with SEN. You will also take a module focused on Asperger syndrome – to enter this sector it is key that you are well educated and informed on the key aspects and impact of Asperger’s.
This course will also give you the ability to spot signs and symptoms of ADHD and feel confident providing children, young people and their families with accurate support and advice where needed.
This course is ideal if you would like to study how to provide care and support for children with special educational needs, such as Asperger’s, Down’s Syndrome or ADHD.
This course will give the knowledge you need to work as a childcare professional in a role that supports children with special educational needs.
