If you are considering a career switch to doing something more meaningful with your career, or currently dealing with exceptional children, or have a calling to work with them, you will need to be specially trained! You will need to understand the different types of exceptional children and all their intellectual, emotional and physical disabilities. They might have developmental issues such as:
- Down syndrome
They may have behavioral/Emotional issues such as:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Oppositional Defiance Disorder
You will also need an understanding of special needs education, the different programmes and specialties as well as the educational support framework.
College of Allied Educators offers our Diploma in Education (Special Needs), that provides an essential introduction to the various categories of exceptional children and educational programmes available. The course will also train you to confidently design and implement an Individualised Education Plan or IEP to aid in specific areas such as language and communications.
This is a 6-month, part-time programme that will allow you to continue onto the Advanced Diploma in Special Education, a 12-month course that trains educators and parents in the identification, diagnosis and treatment of these needs and the basic principles and practices of effective teaching and learning. The programme is highly practice-oriented to ensure that what you learn in class can be applied to children with special needs under your charge.
