Are you passionate about working with children? SEN stands for special educational needs. These educational methods are used for children and young people with special needs such as autism, dyslexia, and visual impairments, to name a few. Though every child has a right to public education in any institute they want, not all teachers are adequately prepared or trained to cater to their needs. This fully accredited SEN Teaching Assistant Diploma course is designed to prepare you to work in a school as a special needs teaching assistant, or higher level teaching assistant.

This SEN teaching assistant course is divided into three parts and starts with an introduction to SEN teaching, where you will explore your role as a teacher. Furthermore, you will explore SEN code of practice and gain an understanding of SENCO and various learning activities. You will also get tips on management strategies for SEN classrooms, dealing with pupils that suffer from a variety of conditions, the learning difficulties they face and so much more. The next section introduces SEN in the USA where you learn about the principles of special education and the SEN curriculum. Finally, you will explore ADHD, its causes, diagnosis, treatment and characteristics.

Becoming a special educational needs teaching assistant requires great dedication and strategies, and this course will help you to develop the practical knowledge and skills you need to kickstart your career in teaching children with special educational needs.
