SEND Seminar May 2015

01/05/15

During the May half term Protocol Education is hosting another SEND Seminar. The focus is supporting students with specific learning difficulties, in particular Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. We have chosen this  area as we are aware that there are a high number of students in schools today with specific learning difficulties . We want to ensure our staff have the knowledge and understanding to support students in the best  possible way and they  are confident in actively promoting  an inclusive classroom.  

Our SEND Seminar on the 28th May will be held in our Head Office in Central London and will run from 10am until 2:30pm. We are pleased to say we have three very different, exceptional guest speakers who will be sharing their experience, knowledge and strategies with you.

Rosie Edmondson is a young woman who was diagnosed with Dyspraxia/Dyslexia when she was 4 years old. Despite being diagnosed early she was not always given the right support for her needs. Rosie is now working as an LSA in a School in North London and will be sharing her own personal experience with us as well as what she feels are the best ways to support students with specific learning difficulties.

Following Rosie, Lisa McCarthy from the Dyspraxia Foundation will be joining us to share the work of the Foundation with you. She will be talking about the support available to people working in schools and the resources that are readily available through the Dyspraxia Foundation.

Lastly we are very excited to have Michelle Rock with us who has been a SENCo, an English HOD, Specialist teacher and Consultant in a range of schools in and around London for thirteen years and in post apartheid South Africa for twelve years before that.  Since 2011, she has worked as a freelance consultant in many schools across the UK, among them several Harris Academies, for whom she carries out Year seven and Year nine screening and assessment for literacy difficulties and Access Arrangements.

Michelle will be sharing her knowledge of supporting students with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD through an interactive and engaging workshop on Neuro Diversity.  During the workshop you will be asked to put yourself in the shoes of your students to understand how to engage and support them in the best ways possible. You will walk away from this workshop with a number of practical strategies and a solid resource pack to take back to the classroom.

If you or someone you know are interested in attending please contact Trisha Brook on CPDTeam@protocol-education.com for more information and how to book your place.
