The Whole Child Approach
24 August 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm HKTHKD250
Topic 1: The Learning Journey: how to include all children in education, including those who have SEN (1:45pm to 3:45pm)
The session will explore how the term ‘inclusion’ is used in the UK and how it may be helpful to see it as a process rather than referring to the place where children are taught. Examples will be given of the range of provision that has been established, in an attempt to provide an appropriate environment for every child.
After considering the importance of understanding the nature of the difficulties children may have, the session will end by looking at practical ways of making an educational setting as inclusive as possible for all the children who attend.
Topic 2: Working Together; ideas for addressing the needs of the whole child (4pm to 6pm)
The session will cover the need for all those who are concerned with a child’s education and wellbeing to work together.
This includes, firstly, the importance of working in partnership with parents and families and involving them in their child’s learning. Older children, or those who are more verbal, can be encouraged to express their ideas about what helps them to learn, while others may show through their behaviour how they respond to different learning experiences.
Secondly, there will be a discussion about how to ensure that all the staff across different professions who are involved with the same child, are able to work together, in order to take a holistic view of the child and maximise his or her progress.
