However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses has risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic.

You’ll learn how to support someone with Down’s syndrome throughout their lives, as you explore how their needs change as they grow and develop. The course guides you through this, step-by-step, starting with the sometimes-controversial issue of prenatal testing for the condition, which explains the test and the ethical issues that surround it.

8. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

Getting a good night's sleep is essential. If you have insomnia, it can affect your entire life, because if you cannot sleep, you cannot function. This course explains the issues that can occur from insomnia and offers many solutions to overcome the condition and lead a healthier, happier life.

The four brainwave types are explained, covering what happens as the brain takes on each state and what it means to us. Further to this, the course looks at the stages of sleep we go through each night, the Circadian rhythms that affect us over each 24-hour period, and what happens to our bodies when we have an inadequate amount of sleep.

The course considers why certain foods and drinks disturb our sleep. Amongst other information, you’ll discover how having a nightcap may be detrimental to a good night’s sleep and how smoking can also upset sleep as well contribute to sleep apnoea and snoring.

As you gain an understanding of the contributing factors of insomnia, you will also gain the knowledge of the techniques that you can incorporate into your life to aid sleep. One such method involves being mindful of your breath. The course outlines the benefits to conscious breathing and guides you through several techniques that can aid relaxation, lower stress levels and improve your ability to fall asleep.

Keeping a sleep/stress journal can also help you to pinpoint what is affecting your sleep. You’ll learn what should be included in this and ways to overcome the issues it highlights. Having an evening ritual that eases you into getting ready for bed and making sure that the bedroom is a shrine to sleep and relaxation are two ways to create the right atmosphere for a great night’s sleep. You will learn about both.

Although there are physical factors and conditions that can contribute to someone suffering from insomnia, many people are afflicted due to a lack of control of their mind and the stresses of life. The Insomnia Practitioner Course gives in-depth explanations of meditation and hypnosis as tools for improving your life, reducing stress and anxiety, and overcoming insomnia. You’ll learn specific techniques that will aid relaxation and promote restful sleep.

The Insomnia Practitioner Course looks at medicinal treatments. You’ll learn about prescription medications for insomnia – when each type is administered and the common side effects associated with taking sleeping pills.

The course also looks at holistic alternatives to prescription medication. You’ll learn about the power of herbs, homoeopathic remedies, and aromatherapy in the treatment of insomnia.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Insomnia Practitioner Course has been designed to provide you with practical techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, improve your lifestyle and health, and overcome insomnia. You’ll find some techniques more appealing than others, but you will find something here to help you create a healthy routine of restful sleep.

You’ll learn how to support someone with Down’s syndrome throughout their lives, as you explore how their needs change as they grow and develop. The course guides you through this, step-by-step, starting with the sometimes-controversial issue of prenatal testing for the condition, which explains the test and the ethical issues that surround it.

Finally, the last module moves towards how you can help your family and the wider society with the insight you have gained in the topic.

8. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

Getting a good night's sleep is essential. If you have insomnia, it can affect your entire life, because if you cannot sleep, you cannot function. This course explains the issues that can occur from insomnia and offers many solutions to overcome the condition and lead a healthier, happier life.

Further to this, the course looks at the stages of sleep we go through each night, the Circadian rhythms that affect us over each 24-hour period, and what happens to our bodies when we have an inadequate amount of sleep.

The course considers why certain foods and drinks disturb our sleep. Amongst other information, you’ll discover how having a nightcap may be detrimental to a good night’s sleep and how smoking can also upset sleep as well contribute to sleep apnoea and snoring.

As you gain an understanding of the contributing factors of insomnia, you will also gain the knowledge of the techniques that you can incorporate into your life to aid sleep. One such method involves being mindful of your breath. The course outlines the benefits to conscious breathing and guides you through several techniques that can aid relaxation, lower stress levels and improve your ability to fall asleep.

Keeping a sleep/stress journal can also help you to pinpoint what is affecting your sleep. You’ll learn what should be included in this and ways to overcome the issues it highlights. Having an evening ritual that eases you into getting ready for bed and making sure that the bedroom is a shrine to sleep and relaxation are two ways to create the right atmosphere for a great night’s sleep. You will learn about both.

Although there are physical factors and conditions that can contribute to someone suffering from insomnia, many people are afflicted due to a lack of control of their mind and the stresses of life. The Insomnia Practitioner Course gives in-depth explanations of meditation and hypnosis as tools for improving your life, reducing stress and anxiety, and overcoming insomnia. You’ll learn specific techniques that will aid relaxation and promote restful sleep.

The Insomnia Practitioner Course looks at medicinal treatments. You’ll learn about prescription medications for insomnia – when each type is administered and the common side effects associated with taking sleeping pills.

The course also looks at holistic alternatives to prescription medication. You’ll learn about the power of herbs, homoeopathic remedies, and aromatherapy in the treatment of insomnia.

Who would benefit from the course?
