Course Description

This course is designed to offer a deeper understanding of class dynamics, students’ wellbeing, learning success, and family involvement in inclusive schools. “We are all special” reflects the attitude that educators may use in inclusive classes, in order to prevent labeling, isolation, or bullying towards students with special needs. In a diverse classroom, diversity is a synonym for understanding, integration, and opportunity.

Participants will be given a general introduction to main disabilities such as learning disabilities (dyslexia, dyspraxia), emotional and behavioral disorders (ADHD, ADD, Depression, Bipolar), intellectual and physical disabilities and impairment, developmental disabilities (Autism). They will also be encouraged to share their experiences and the difficulties they may have encountered in their profession.

They will be given a series of hands-on activities to prevent isolation and disruptive behaviors from the beginning of the school year, considering peer interaction and peer support as fundamental elements to build social skills, self-confidence, and cope with stress and helplessness.

Participants will also experience effective relaxation techniques and movement-based activities, to be used with students with special needs and the rest of the class.

Finally, participants will be trained in the use of positive and practical strategies to improve effective communication with parents and with the rest of the class.

*Course sessions of July and August will be offered in Nafplio

Jeżeli chodzi o organizację która organizowała kurs wszystko w jak najlepszym porządku. Kurs dotyczył pracy z dziećmi ze specjalnym potrzebami. Najbardziej podobał mi się dzień w którym mogliśmy brać udział w ćwiczeniach i na własnym przykładzie poznawać te ćwiczenia.

The course topic inclusion and special education was very interesting and important for us teachers. The content of the course: inclusion was introduced in a variety of ways and the knowledge was based on theory. In addition to the lecture teaching, we discussed a lot with the participants during the course and shared our own experiences of inclusion. We told each other about the practices we use in our own teaching. These discussions were rewarding and beneficial to my own work.
