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

A two hour thought provoking Workshop for Special Needs Assistants.

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.

Special needs assistants 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 Special Needs Assistants
  • Why children display certain behaviours
  • Triggers – how to recognise and respond
  • Special Needs Assistants Communication Skills and Knowledge that will assist in regulating children that are distressed.

Peer observation is about teachers observing each others practice and learning from one
another. It aims to support the sharing of best practice and can help teachers at any stage in
their career gain valuable insights about their teaching performance in a confidential,
trusting environment. It is an effective tool to enable teachers to access feedback on their
practice, build their individual capability and develop a shared understanding of effective
methodologies. This type of collegial collaboration has many benefits for each individual
teacher and for building whole-school capacity. Encouraging teachers to critically reflect on
their own practices, observe new teaching methodologies and make connections with
colleagues within and beyond their own discipline are just some of the advantages from
partaking in this type of activity.  Peer observation encourages and supports teachers as
they continue to improve their practice in ways that better promote student learning.

This course is designed to support SNAs in their knowledge of how creative activities such as art can support a child with special educational needs.(SEN).

The first part of the workshop will help SNAs to appreciate how children with SEN may come to terms with their challenges. For example, children on the autistic spectrum will benefit from being in contact with certain art materials, which may increase tolerance for unpleasant stimuli, whilst channelling challenging behaviours, sensory fixations etc into creative activity.

The second part of the workshop is designed to enhance the SNAs understanding and empathy for the children in their care.

TEST 2r is a comprehensive assessment tool used to screen and pin-point the emergent literacy skills which a 5 - 6 year old child should have acquired.

The screener test made up of five subtests (tasks) is administered  as a means of formative assessment. If a child does not perform well in a particular subtest (or subtests), the SET will administer subtests 6-18 which are more diagnostic in nature in order to clarify specific subskill needs.   Once the test has been administered and scored, results can be entered on the online TEST2r website www.test2r.ie to generate a written report.  Based on these results, appropriate interventions are planned which are supported by resources in the teachers’ manual or from the listed online resources. 

Further information on TEST2r Assessment kit is on www.test2r.ie, Blackrock Education Centre

Dear Principal,

Principalship in modern times has become a challenging and demanding position and it is acknowledged that principals require ongoing support.

In response to this need, the Education Centre, Tralee in conjunction with PDST is offering the opportunity to principals to come together with fellow principals to collaborate and learn from each other under the guidance of a skilled school leader and facilitator. (Jody O’ Connor)

The programme will consist of four sessions in the school year 2019/20. At these sessions the PDST facilitator will provide an opportunity for you to share your experiences, collaborate and learn from colleagues who are facing similar leadership decisions. The agenda for these sessions will be set by you the participants based on your needs. A minimum of 3-5 years’ experience as a Principal is required to take part in these sessions.

An information meeting will be held in the Education Centre Tralee on 12th of September at 5pm where you will be furnished with all details. Please register your interest by booking your place on the Education Centre website at www.edcentretralee.ie

Yours sincerely,

Nuala Taaffe
