Assessment and Support of Students with ASN

Sorry, this event has been cancelled.

Tuesday, 17th January 2017, 9:30am - 12:30pm

Many students require additional support in the classroom to achieve their full potential. The use of technology is vitally important for many struggling learners and therefore every teacher should be aware of what hardware, software, apps and peripheral devices are available to ensure that we are Getting It Right For Every Child.

  • How do you identify what support is required and how do you best implement it?
  • Do you know what pathways of support exist in your authority?
  • Do you know what assistive hardware and software/apps could help your students?
  • Do you know how to embed the use of ICT in your classroom to support your students?
