Course Description

As educators we come across a range of diverse students, some of our students may need just that little bit of extra support to help them due to being differently abled.

This course covers how we can best support these students by developing an understanding of disabilities and learning, supporting students through strategies and responding to risky behaviour and uncharacteristic behaviours in students.

The course contains a series of lectures broken up into three parts and a series of knowledge quizzes throughout to assess your understanding and application in different contexts and, you will have access to a repository of articles surrounding education and supporting students with disabilities.

The course is structured as follows:
