Working with Children with Dyspraxia/DCD: Strategies and advice for an inclusive classroom- A webinar for Primary Teachers and SNAs 22.3.2021

This webinar looks at how Dyspraxia/DCD can affect children in a variety of ways and how these factors may affect these children in the classroom. It aims to provide primary teachers and SNA with a greater understanding of the lives of children with Dyspraxia/DCD as well as strategies and ideas to address these needs in an inclusive manner.

Areas to be covered include: Defining and understanding DCD, Child experiences, Representations and manifestations, sensory integration and processing and strategies to address areas such as handwriting, fine motor skills, emotional regulation and organisation.

Learning objectives

By the end of the webinar:

  • Participants will have a greater understanding of Dyspraxia/DCD and the varying impacts it may have on children’s school and occupational performance
  • Participants will have developed tools to help inclusively meet students with Dyspraxia’s needs throughout the school day
  • Participants will have a knowledge of a number of strategies and teaching techniques to aid the student with Dyspraxia/DCD in the classroom setting.

Stephen Hodnett  is a qualified occupational therapist and primary school teacher with over 10 years’ experience in the classroom, working in both mainstream and SEN settings. Stephen has worked with Dyspraxia/DCD Ireland and their members in recent times, including the development of the ‘Our say in our schools’ resource for schools by children with Dyspraxia/DCD.
