The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them.  

Suitable for teachers from Junior Infants to First class and SETs.

Numicon is a multi-sensory maths teaching programme using Numicon maths shapes in a series of practical teaching activities. Numicon’s visual, auditory and kinaesthetic approach appeals to different learning styles. Pupils learn through both seeing and feeling how Numicon patterns connect with each other.

By physically manipulating Numicon to build constructions, make arrangements and patterns and play games using the feely bag, pupils will experience with both their hands and their eyes how numbers fit together. The powerful images can also open doors for children struggling with number, no matter how old they are.

Edmond Scannell is a teacher at a special school in Limerick and has made numerous presentations at schools and ETBs, mainly in Literacy and Maths.

Supporting Children’s Challenging Behaviour in a school setting and ways we can help them

A two hour thought provoking Workshop for Pre School Educators both teachers and SNAs.

This workshop will be delivered by Edel Lawlor, Expressive Play and Therapy Centre Kerry. Edel has over 20 years’ experience and is passionate about supporting children in society.   Edel specialises in working with children and is an established trainer in Kerry and nationally.

Edel is known for her unique manner of delivering workshops by engaging participants in a creative way to make training both enjoyable and memorable.

About this workshop

How many children are there in our schools or services that have been and remain misunderstood? It seems that our services are filling up with increasing numbers of distressed children. People who work with children can be left feeling disempowered and de-skilled as they try to teach them or support them. The longer we fail to connect with these children, the longer the child will miss out in opportunities in helping them realize their potential.

Pre School teachers and SNAs are key in supporting children emotionally as well as academically within the class room environment. Often behaviours occur that may need extra attention and guidance, in this workshop Edel will explore

  • Importance of the Role of the Pre School Teacher and SNA
  • Why children display certain behaviours
  • Triggers – how to recognise and respond
  •  Communication Skills and Knowledge that will assist in regulating children that are distressed.
