About this workshop

How many children are there in our schools or services that have been and remain misunderstood?  It seems that our services are filling up with increasing numbers of distressed children.  People who work with children can be left feeling disempowered and de-skilled as they try to teach them or support them. The longer we fail to connect with these children, the longer the child will miss out in opportunities in helping them realize their potential.

Special needs assistants are key in supporting children emotionally as well as academically within the class room environment. Often behaviours occur that may need extra attention and guidance, in this workshop Edel will explore

  • Importance of the Role of the Special Needs Assistants
  • Why children display certain behaviours
  • Triggers – how to recognise and respond
  • Special Needs Assistants Communication Skills and Knowledge that will assist in regulating children that are distressed.
