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.
