My previous posting drew attention to the DfE's new £500,000 scholarship scheme for SEN support staff. Now I can add that the Scheme's SEN support scholarship: Round 1 handbook - April 2012 lists 31 eligible non-accredited courses in Appendix 2.
These include 5 offerings from Scope:
- Cerebral palsy in the classroom: An introduction to the causes and effects of cerebral palsy on the child and adolescent, common learning difficulties and strategies to support classroom learning
- Neurologically based behaviours: An introduction to the way that behaviours are compelled within the brain and strategies to support behaviour managements based on environmental changes
- Working with families of disabled children: An introduction to the journey families undertake with their disabled child and ways to support them and work together
- Multi-sensory learning: Ideas for working with children operating within P Scales 1-3
- AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) in the classroom: Practical ideas to teach and include children who use alternative methods of communication
