What's it all about?

Learn how to successfully meet the diverse needs of students with disabilities in your classroom from an experienced special educator. We'll dissect the whole special education process, from working with individualised education programs (IEPs) to helping students struggling with reading comprehension, math skills, and writing.

We'll also talk about fun games you can incorporate, tips for modifying your classroom, and lots of tested methods for bringing out the best behavior in your students. Whether you're already in the classroom, studying for the Praxis Special Education exam, or getting ready to work with students in a variety of settings, this course will prepare you to understand and empower your kids with learning disabilities. In this course, you'll discover easy, practical, and creative strategies that will help your struggling students find their light bulb moments!

Courses are delivered to you through expertly executed lessons, online instruction and interaction with like-minded students. Our courses are designed to deliver all of the benefits of studying in a classroom whilst giving you the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit your needs. You can access your classroom 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.

New sessions of each course start monthly and last for six weeks. You’ll gain access to two lessons a week (for a total of 12 lessons) helping you pace your learning. There are no set times for you to study, you can log in and out at any time and complete the course at your own pace. Your expert tutor will guide and facilitate your course, answering any questions you have and providing guidance and feedback. You’ll complete comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments before submitting your final exam at the end of the course to achieve your certificate.
