Learning support PLD: Understanding Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Developing learning-focused relationships with your learners who require additional support can be challenging for teachers. This practical workshop aims to demystify foetal alcohol spectrum disorder and equip educators with the right understanding to best support their learners.

This workshop is ideal for teachers, teacher aides, SENCOs, Learning Support Co-ordinators (LSC), RTLBs, kaiako in early learning settings, and leaders.

Brenda Ellis will be leading this series of workshops. Brenda has specialist knowledge, expertise and in-depth experience in learning support, having recently joined Evaluation Associates from Salisbury School (a national residential school for young people with complex needs based in Nelson). Brenda brings her years of sensible, practical experience to this empowering workshop. Follow the Quick Links for details.
