STADIO School of Education offers two CPTD short courses in Practising Inclusive Education, namely:
Course 1: Screening, Identification, Assessment and Support (SIAS)
Course 2: Responding to Barriers to Learning
Research suggests that children with disabilities benefit greatly when they attend classes with children who don’t have disabilities.
Inclusive Education refers to all children, with or without disabilities, who learn and participate together in the same classroom. Therefore, teachers must be able to identify these learners and must also be able to effectively teach the Inclusive Education curriculum to these learners.
STADIO recognises Inclusive Education as one of the most effective ways to promote an inclusive and tolerant society, and has designed this CPTD short course to address the needs of inclusive classroom teaching
