Successful Strategies for Teaching Students with Special Needs in Every Classroom

Description

Concept by Dimitris Zisimopoulos

This course is for teachers working with students with special educational needs in mainstream and special education schools. The course has been tailored to meet the needs of teachers by providing teaching and assessment methods, strategies, and tools to address the distinctive learning needs of their students.

Through case study discussion, as well as sharing of good practices and ICT tools, participants will understand and deal with the key challenges of special education including:

  • Recognizing students’ special needs (e.g. autism spectrum, intellectual disabilities); 
  • Identifying and assessing students with special needs (e.g. curriculum-based measurement); 
  • Designing differentiated activities to access the general curriculum; 
  • Applying teaching methods and strategies (e.g. task analysis, physical guidance) to deliver individual educational plan goals and objectives; 
  • Using ICT tools to support all learners; 
  • Professional and home–school collaboration.

By the end of the course, participants will gain a greater insight into issues regarding teaching and learning in special, integration, and inclusion settings, all while identifying the barriers and the necessary resources for successfully addressing students’ learning educational needs in effective and functional ways that will promote students’ participation and achievement within the school community.

We were given a diverse range of topics and assignments throughout the course, which added depth and variety to our learning experience. These assignments allowed us to explore different aspects of the subject matter and apply our knowledge in practical ways. It was a well-rounded approach that enhanced our understanding and engagement with the material.

It was an amazing experience where I had the opportunity to meet educators from 5 different European countries. We realized that we have a lot to learn from each other.

Tatjana Graffrom Germany
5 stars

The course atmosphere was relaxed and familiar, but at the same time also professional and very interested in the further development of the participants. The learning content provided very good impulses and offered an excellent opportunity to return to everyday life at home with inspiration and new motivation. In addition, the exchange with other colleagues is an invaluable asset inside from other European countries.
