Why SEND cause behaviour problems and how to restore order – Emma Rossiter @ Remote Session
Jun 8 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Good behaviour is a set of very complex social skills and so the link between special educational needs and behaviour problems is enormous.  This session explores the impact of common special educational needs (ASC, ADHD, dyslexia, learning difficulties, attachment disorders) on the ability to regulate behaviour and how we can support young people to do much better at acquiring and using the skills that they need.  This session will give you practical strategies that you can use straight away and that you can share with your colleagues to make learning even better in your setting.

You will also receive information resources to share with colleagues to maximise the impact of this training in your setting.

Who is the course for?

For SEND Co-ordinators, teachers from all settings, ELSAs, HLTAs, teaching assistants and anyone supporting young people in an educational setting.

Emma Rossiter is Deputy Headteacher at Silverwood School*. Emma provides expert training and support about the strategies that enable young people to overcome their challenges and achieve their potential.

Reaching and teaching pupils with Adverse Childhood Experiences – Emma Rossiter @ Remote Session
Jun 29 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The session examines how to reach and teach pupils with Adverse Childhood Experiences, covering what we all need to know and do.

Abuse, parental separation, neglect, bullying, bereavement are just some of the difficulties that can combine to create toxic stress for the young people that we teach.  The negative impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can include low academic achievement, poor health and as much as a 20 year drop in life expectancy.  Young people with 4 or more adverse childhood experiences are more likely to be labelled as lacking focus, and having behavioural or cognitive difficulties.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  All of us working in education can make a real and positive difference for children affected by ACEs.  This course will help us develop our knowledge about ACEs and gain very practical strategies that we can all do, whatever our roles within education.

Who is the course for?

For SEND Co-ordinators, teachers from all settings, ELSAs, HLTAs, teaching assistants and anyone supporting young people in an educational setting.
