Concept by Marta Mandolini

Description

This course is designed to offer a deeper understanding of class dynamics, students’ wellbeing, learning success, and family involvement in inclusive schools. “We are all special” reflects the attitude that educators may use in inclusive classes, in order to prevent labeling, isolation, bullying towards special needs or diverse students in general, and that will be the core concept of main activities during the course, where diversity is synonym of understanding, integration and opportunity.

Participants will be given a general introduction to main disabilities such as learning disabilities (dyslexia, dyspraxia), emotional and behavioural disorders (ADHD, ADD, Depression, Bipolar..), intellectual and physical disabilities and impairment, developmental disabilities (Autism). They will also be encouraged to share their experiences and difficulties they may have encountered in their profession.

They  will be given a series of hands-on activities to prevent isolation and disruptive behaviours from the beginning of the school year, considering peer interaction and peer support as fundamental elements to build social skills, self-confidence and cope with stress and helplessness. 

Participants will also experience effective relaxation techniques, and movement-based activities, to be used with special needs students and the rest of the class. 

Finally, participants will be trained in the use of positive and practical strategies to improve an effective communication with parents and the with the rest of the class.  

Guided city tours and an excursion will also be part of the programme.
