Course Description

Children with learning difficulties, and mental or neuropsychiatric disorders may pose particular challenges to teachers who are not familiar with their special needs. This course will introduce you to the 3-staged model that the Finnish primary schools have specifically developed to promote the learning and personal growth of these children.

Designed and delivered by a Finnish teacher, the course clarifies how the best learning and growth in children with special needs is promoted by the close cooperation among the teacher, the school system and administration, and other partners outside the school (such as parents, and bio-, psycho-, and social institutions).

The course will provide you with a practical understanding of the difficulties and challenges that a child with special needs may have upon entering your classroom. By the end of it, you will know concrete, hands-on methodologies for teaching to students with special needs, and concentrate on their learning.
