Course description

The Online Inclusion and Special Needs course looks at innovative and student centred approaches to teaching special needs learners within a normal classroom environment.

Teachers will come to understand the issues facing these learners and ways to help involve them in a mainstream learning environment.

The course is aimed at teachers who want to know how to best include special needs learners in the classroom and share lesson ideas and activities with other teachers from around the world.

Please note, this course is for mainstream education teachers, not for SEN specialists.


The Online Special Needs Programme is designed for teachers who want to know how to best work with special needs learners and share lesson ideas and activities with other teachers from around the world.

Being a methodology course, references will be made to most of the latest methodologies. The focus of this course will be innovative and student-centred approaches to teaching special needs learners.

After the course, participants will be able to design lessons and activities that are motivating, challenging and effective.



The course is hands-on and interactive, enabling participants to be fully immersed in the subject matter. Trainer-led sessions use the techniques and approaches being discussed so that the practical application of methods can be experienced within the programme. This is supported by in-depth discussion group work.

Participants will build up a bank of ideas and be encouraged to experiment and think “outside the box“.

Case studies of different education needs learners throughout the course will include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Speech and Language Difficulties, Visual, Hearing and Physical Impairment, Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, Gifted Learners.
