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 understanding of hearing loss has significantly improved, providing me with knowledge and skills to support inclusive practise in the classroom. I now understand that no two children with hearing loss are the same therefore hearing loss can impact on not only hearing but on learning, communication and social skills. Being equipped with knowledge, intervention strategies and ongoing assessment is critical to me as a teacher.

Understanding Hearing Loss

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.

Graduate teacher
Dyslexia and Significant Difficulties in Reading

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

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 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

I think having done the course I feel more positive in knowing that the way I already work with my students is the desired way to manage their behaviours anyway. I probably just feel more educated now and positive within myself.

Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

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

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.

School excutive
Dyslexia and Significant Difficulties in Reading

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

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'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.
