I feel that the knowledge gained on the subject of MCD has given me a level of confidence in meeting the needs of these students. Previously I sometimes assumed the student was lazy, distracted or not interested. I feel that my interventions would improve the performance and coordination of these students therefore preventing undesirable behaviours developing and increasing their self-esteem.

Dyspraxia and Motor Coordination Difficulties

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.

Dyspraxia and Motor Coordination Difficulties

My understanding of how to assess student needs has improved through an increased understanding of the difficulties some students’ experience. This course in conjunction with L3 training has provided me with the knowledge surrounding a variety of forms of ongoing assessment.

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.

Understanding Hearing Loss

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.

Personalised Learning

I have always been a fairly confident teacher but this course has really made me re visit the things that I do as a teaching professional and how I view behaviour and consequences. This has given me a renewed confidence in dealing with behaviour challenged students.

Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

I have done a few online courses, but this has been the most comprehensive.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

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

I have a better understanding of the motivations of children's behaviour. And I am able to look at the situations now more clearly.

Primary teacher
Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

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.

Support teacher
Dyslexia and Significant Difficulties in Reading

The setting of these goals enabled me to focus on the areas in which the child needed support and to set aside time to work individually with him. I have used this in my practice with other children, identifying areas which need support and providing short one to one small group sessions to address these.

Teaching Assistant
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

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.
