Tailoring science learning to be suitable to the additional support needs of children with learning difficulties LIMITED
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning difficulties such as those associated with autism, ADHD, and DCD are very common with one in every five children affected. Children with these conditions show characteristic profiles in language, cognition, motor learning, sensory processing and anxiety that impact how they learn academic subjects including science. This workshop will explore the typical profiles children with one or more of these conditions have in relation to learning science. The workshop will have a strong practical focus with participants working through case examples in small groups. Guidance will be provided for tailoring teaching to meet the additional support needs of these children.
