Title / Synopsis: Practical Advice for Supporting Pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH)

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording is now available on our recordings page, the presentation will be uploaded in due course.

Abstract: The issue of pupils’ mental health has become much more prominent in recent months and of the four areas of special educational need, SEMH is the one most challenging for schools.

Despite hundreds of thousands of pupils across the nation having social, emotional and mental health needs, the expertise and resources are less prevalent in comparison to other SEN areas, with the joining up of mental health services with schools less developed.

Malcolm Reeve, Executive Director for SEND and Inclusion at Academies Enterprise Trust explores what schools can do to tackle the ever-increasing pressure on teachers and school resources.

Title / Synopsis: To Observe or not to Observe that is not the Question!

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording is now available on our recordings page, the presentation will be uploaded in due course.

Abstract: Then what is the question?  HOW to observe and WHAT role does observation play in the Graduated Approach, as defined by the 0-25 years SEND Code of practice (DfE 2015).  The context is about observing pupils, not staff.  Teacher observation (planned and/or spontaneous) is a powerful tool to enhance understanding of the learner/s and thereby introduce timely interventions, when necessary.

In this webinar, we will explore different types of observation methods that could be used in the classroom, recording methods, what data emerges or tell us and how to use it to improve learner outcomes.  Part of the discussion will also be dedicated to who should observe, when/how often and how to engage parents/carers in the process.

“Observation is a systematic data collection approach. Researchers use all of their senses to examine people in natural settings or naturally occurring situations.” - Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

It is envisioned, participants will leave this webinar with a schema of when to use different types of observation in the classroom and how to effectively analyse/utilise the data that emerges from any observation.

Presenter(s): Maxine Burns

Title / Synopsis: Talk about Talk Secondary; A Pilot Programme to Improve Young People’s Communication Skills Built on a Proven Winning Model

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording is now available on our recordings page, the presentation will be uploaded in due course.

Abstract: Talk about Talk Secondary is a programme for secondary schools that improves confidence and communication skills in young people with communication difficulties. 

This programme, built on a proven winning model, trains school staff so they can mentor students to become co-trainers, with the confidence and communication skills to deliver workshops about communication difficulties to local employers. 

Delivering workshops first to an audience in their school and then to local businesses, students will learn and practise the communication skills that support other ‘soft’ employability skills such as team working, time management and problem-solving. A series of tutoring sessions run between workshops will help students to reflect on, and improve their communication and presentation skills.

Title / Synopsis: Communication Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: iPads and Pictures

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording is now available on our recordings page, the presentation will be uploaded in due course.

Abstract: Many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have delayed or impaired language development, and approximately 30% are minimally verbal at 9 years of age. In recognition of these grave difficulties, clinicians and special educators implement numerous augmentative and alternative communication systems (AACs) that enable children with ASD to communicate without using spoken words. Since the emergence of the Apple iPad in 2010, there has been as surge toward tablet-based learning and there are now countless “apps” designed to support and develop communication skills in children with ASD. However, despite their popularity, research has only just begun to establish whether children’s communication skills actually benefit from tablet-based interventions.

In this session we will review recent evidence concerning the effectiveness of iPads as a mode for delivering AACs to children with ASD. We will also consider why and how content (focusing on pictures) can have an important influence on children’s understanding. There will be time for Q&A.
