This module will develop knowledge and understanding of SEND in primary and early years settings. It will consider the four main areas of SEND: Cognition and learning; Sensory and physical impairments; Communication and interaction; and behavioural, emotional and social development. You will also consider the systems and strategies employed in schools and settings to meet the needs of special children.
This module develops your understanding of the principles behind inclusive practices in schools and educational settings, and how these ideas relate to contemporary schooling, education, democracy and participatory practices. The module develops your understanding of children’s rights and their voice in the broader context of ‘abilities’, achievement, underperformance and underachievement. The module also questions to what extent inclusive practices are possible in schools today and requires reflection on theory to inform practice. It examines and evaluates data and recent developments, and critically reflects on publications concerning inclusive practices.
You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course. Where optional modules are available, you will be asked to make your choice during the previous academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
