ASDAN is giving away free, downloadable resources to support distance learning and educating. These resources, ranging from working towards Entry 1 to Level 2, are aimed at educators and learners as well as their parents and guardians, where appropriate, and can be accessed on our website.
Created by Gillian Beck from Stranmillis University in consultation with Lorraine McAleer from Learning SPACE, this useful document can be used by classroom teachers and teaching assistants to understand and support children in the classroom with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The Gatsby benchmarks have prompted much discussion on a crucial aspect of education for young people with SEND – how prepared they are to enter the world of work. Simon Lawrence, ASDAN’s Head of Business Development and Communications, provides a list of engaging activities aimed at helping learners develop their employability skills.
The personalised learning approach for students with additional needs in today’s education sector is a given. But what’s perhaps less certain is the activities centres can deliver to ensure high quality tailored provision. Simon Lawrence, ASDAN’s Head of Business Development and Communications, provides some suggestions.
Earlier this year, ASDAN commissioned SEND expert Richard Aird OBE to undertake the review with the aim of ensuring our provision is fit for purpose and future-proofed.
Richard has 30 years’ experience as headteacher of four special schools and has provided advice to the Department for Education (DfE), most notably as a member of the Rochford Review (2016) and the Review of Teachers’ Standards (2011).
