Consider the implications for children with neurological conditions and reflect on how opportunities for learning can be maximised for such learners. This workshop gives indications on how to develop functional interventions for early years primary or secondary children with autism, social thinking communication and learning difficulties. The session closes with questions and answers. 

Training 15-20 people, 3.5hrs or a shorter option of 1.5 hrs. 


What are your thoughts about the training and how this training has helped you? 

“I enjoyed the training on learning and memory. It was a very interactive session, which aimed at bridging the theoretical knowledge on brain development and cognition with the practical implication in a classroom. The trainer clearly described the lobes in the brain and their functions providing some food for thought on potentially efficient teaching approach. The environment was friendly and inviting for personal inputs or considerations providing the space for learning from each other and sharing our experience. Such experience deepened our understanding of the roots and causes of some child’s behaviours as well as demonstrated the brighter side of such children switching the focus to more positive perception of neurodiversity.”

To quantify their level of difficulties and to provide opportunities to express their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. The session closes with questions and answers. 

For 15-20 people, 1h and 30 mins.


Working with learners with profound and multiple learning difficulties: Routines and expectations. 

The session refers to difficulties and learning challenges caused in children with profound and multiple learning difficulties. Implications of working memory; cycle of deprivation and opportunities for learning will be discussed. This training gives indications to how to teach and adapt the lessons to meet their needs, stimulated retention and form new pathways through routines. The session closes with questions and answers. 

Training for 15-20 people, 2h.


ADHD, sleep and health workshop

For 15-20 people, 1h and 30 mins.


Dyslexia challenges workshop

The workshop begins with a general introduction to dyslexia and to its challenges not only on the academic level (learning differences, brain differences, impact in education) but also to the personal level of students (social relationships, struggling with everything, low self-esteem).
