Strategies to Promote Wellbeing with SEN Students

Summary:

The last couple of years have posed particular challenges for students with special educational needs (SEN) and their families. While teachers have responded creatively by adapting their practice and endeavouring to provide opportunities for creative learning, some students with SEN found it very challenging to engage meaningfully with this. Families have experienced stress in trying to meet their child’s learning needs within the home. Many students with SEN have found it difficult to understand the loss of routines and opportunities to interact with school staff and peers, particularly if they have been absent from school for whatever reason.
The webinar will explore the Well-Being Policy Statement and Framework for Practice 2018-2023 (revised October 2019) in accordance with the continuum of support approach. It will focus on how schools can support the well-being of students with particular reference to students with SEN. The role of the teacher in the promotion of well-being for all students will also be explored, as well as the well-being of staff. This webinar is suitable for both Primary and Post-Primary Teachers.
