I have been exposed to a larger variety of each of the types of interventions. Again, having the relevance and reasons why we would choose certain interventions has been highlighted as being so important when supporting students with reading difficulties.

Dyslexia and Significant Difficulties in Reading

This course has helped me to develop a deeper understanding of personalised learning and support and a more authentic ability to assess and plan for interventions.

School executive
Personalised Learning

Have found the checklists provided in the course materials extremely beneficial. These have also directed and improved my observations of students when assessing language for learning.

Support teacher
Understanding Hearing Loss

I now am able to make simple short term goals that are achievable in order to cater for the needs of students with speech, language and communication difficulties. I now know the different types of difficulties and strategies to use to help them.

High school teacher
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

The course highlighted for me that many of my current classroom procedures and supports will help any students with identified or unidentified speech and language problems. I have, through this course, developed my ideas and skills in supporting these students, by increasing my 'toolbox' of ideas.

Primary school teacher
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

My confidence is greatly improved. Although I had a general understanding of the experiences and needs of students with ASD, a greater depth of knowledge is obviously a valuable key to greater confidence. I also feel more legitimately able to address the needs of these students (and communicate with their parents) with some certified training behind me.

High school teacher
Autism Spectrum Disorder

My knowledge has improved throughout the course, and I have gained lots of practical knowledge such as websites, resources such as assessment sheets and notes which have been helpful... We learnt how language develops and were introduced to new terminology and elements of the language system.

Primary teacher
Dyspraxia and Motor Coordination Difficulties

The resources are brilliant and the teaching strategies are articulated so well!!

Primary teacher
Personalised Learning

This is my first time having done an online professional development and it has set the standard quite high for me. I loved the interactive exercises and videos throughout the course.

Primary teacher
Understanding Hearing Loss

I'm going to take away from this course specific information and resources to target areas of need within our school. I will definitely feel more confident in my role to support students, staff and parents and I feel that I have a toolbox brimming with new ideas and refreshed knowledge.

Personalised Learning

My knowledge and understanding has improved during this course and positively impacted my role as a classroom teacher. Reflecting upon my teaching practice helped me identify which elements of my pedagogy and the classroom environment pose difficulties for ASD students on a daily basis … Knowing now that focusing on what you are trying to assess, rather than the method of assessment is vital and personalised to the learner

Support teacher
Autism Spectrum Disorder

As a beginning teacher who works as a casual I have not had a lot of experience with assessment of students. However this course has provided many different assessment tools and the videos in particular of these assessments being used with students have been valuable for me.
