Identify the fundamental concepts and key issues of Dyslexia and Dyspraxia and the role of the teacher in a school.
Draw connections between different types of positive learning differences, recognising that major challenges often produce experiences that are positive or negative for a pupil, caused by or exacerbated by school actions.
Describe and explain how learning differences are “A Gift”, looking from various points of view, with a full and fair-minded understanding of how each strength makes sense on its own terms; the meaningfulness, the empowering support, and the potential successful impact of cognitive power skills on classroom decisions for pupils.
Be able to identify and analyse the ethical aspects of the power of bystanders, designing a positive school, presenting a critical consideration of the option for neuro-diversity that is well-balanced and courageous.
