Planning for Classes for Teachers with Some SEN Hours and Little SEN Training Webinar 15.11.23

This webinar is for post-primary teachers who have been allocated some SEN classes and have not received any formal training on SEN teaching.

  • The principles underlying the strategies that help the students.
  • Classroom planning/resources/strategies for the teacher with some SEN classes. In particular a template for the year’s classwork for a SEN group is outlined.
  • Study skills for the student with dyslexia.
