This month, several members of staff are undergoing further training to enhance their abilities as learning facilitators. To improve our understanding of difficulties children encounter in learning Maths, a member of staff is going to the UK to undertake the University of Worcester’s Advanced Diploma in ‘Overcoming Barriers to Learning in Mathematics’. The main aim here is to gain more practical knowledge that will support our ability to reach the learners who are having difficulty accessing the world of Maths.
To support our understanding of the children’s emotional states, several members of staff are undertaking the Post Graduate Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills, awarded by the Academy of Play and Child Psychotherapy, UK. Because special needs children are often wired very differently and struggle with expressing themselves, Play Therapy serves as an alternative mode of communication to reach these different learners.
If you would like to enhance your own skills, Hils Learning is conducting a workshop on 19 October on Developing Memory through Games. Click here for more details.
