1. Home Education: Learn The Pros And Cons Of Home-Schooling

The Home Education Course helps students to understand how to go about educating their children themselves. The comprehensive materials will answer most, if not all, of your questions about the topic, including the pros and cons of home-schooling.

With 5 million children worldwide being home educated, more parents are exercising their right to educate their children themselves.

Students will learn how to begin home schooling your child, as well as letting you know what is required of you to do so and informing you of any educational bodies who you may, or may not, need to inform of your decision.

The Home Education Course outlines the positives, as well as the negatives, so that parents can make an informed decision on whether this is the best fit for them and their children.

‘Home Education’ does not mean one single way of teaching a child, but is rather a spectrum term that includes many different methods and theories to provide an education that fits their child. As a home educator, you can adapt your teaching to the way your child learns, so that they gain the most from the learning experience. The Home Education Course covers the various ways of learning, going through each of the following: Visual / Spatial, Verbal / Linguistic, Aural (Auditory/Musical), Physical / Kinaesthetic, Solitary (Intrapersonal), Social (Interpersonal), Logical / Mathematics, and Naturalist learning.

You will need materials and resources with which to teach. Fortunately, you can pick and choose from all the materials available in the world. The course teaches parents about some of the more common types of materials and suggests other ways that lessons can be taught, to give a more involved learning experience.

Although the need to plan each lesson is not as great as in traditional education (as you will not be teaching 20-30 children), some lessons achieve their intention more succinctly by being planned. The course talks about which lessons lend themselves well to being planned and provides several lesson plans covering different subjects, for parents to use and adapt to fit their children’s needs.

You may still have a number of questions on the subject of home education. We list some of the most common questions and answers them in-depth; dispelling the myths and incorrect beliefs surrounding the topic.

As the person who will be responsible for your children’s education, you need to be sure that it is the right choice, not only for your child/children and your family but also for you. The final module of the course talks parents through additional research, considerations, and questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to home educate.

The course ends with a conclusion and, although it is not a necessity for home educated children, a National Curriculum is also included, should some wish to use it as a way of determining when certain skills should be taught or learned.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Home Education Course is an excellent resource for parents who have been considering home schooling their child/children, as this course will answer their questions and provide a useful guide on how to get started. It is also ideal for parents who are already educating their children from home and want to improve or consolidate their existing teaching skills and experience.

Speech Therapy is a practice that assists people with speech and language disorders or who have trouble swallowing. This course takes you through the role of a speech therapist, the anatomical structures and physiological functions of speech and hearing, phonetics, language development and speech disorders, the structure of language, and career paths in this field.

The Speech Therapy Course introduces the subject by outlining the basics. It provides an overview of speech disorders and the therapeutic practices used to treat them. You’ll learn about the role of a speech therapist and the conditions and areas of communication that they focus on. You will be provided with in-depth listing of pathological terms that are used amongst speech and language professionals.

To understand speech you need a good level of knowledge about the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the speech organs. This course will talk you through these and the respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory systems, which all have a bearing on speech.

Similarly, you will learn about audiology. The course talks you through the structures and functions belonging to the auditory system and explains the physiology of hearing. There are numerous tests and screening protocols in the UK used to screen and assess children with suspected hearing disorders. You will learn about these and the signs that could indicate hearing loss, which would require an audiology assessment referral.

How we develop speech and the different stages we go through to learn and process language is a fascinating topic. You will discover the various stages that exist within linguistic advancement in monolingual and bilingual children.

Equally as interesting is Phonetics (the study of human speech sounds). The Speech Therapy Course breaks the topic down into its three branches and explains each fully:

  • Articulatory Phonetics: The study of the way in which speech sounds are produced
  • Acoustic Phonetics: Analyses the physical properties of speech
  • Auditory Phonetics: Illustrates the ways in which sound is perceived

Speech Perception, which deals with one’s comprehension of what is being said, is also covered.

The course considers the structure of language, described through morphology, syntax and semantics. In addition to looking at each of these areas you’ll see how children apply the rules that determine speech and language, the common errors they may make and the errors that are symptomatic of speech and communication disorders.

The Speech Therapy Course provides a deep exploration into various conditions that can affect the development of speech and language and how this manifests itself in each case. The conditions covered include neurological disorders, brain injury, drug abuse, intellectual disabilities, vocal abuse, autism and apraxia, plus physical impairments. The course also explains how the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) uses pictorials as a form of treatment of autistic children experiencing speech impairment issues.

For those considering a career as a speech therapist, the course provides information on, and examples of, the various positions and working environments that speech and language therapists may practice in. In each example, duties and responsibilities that occur within these departments are described.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Speech Therapy Course offers valuable insight into the practice of speech therapy, providing those who wish to work within the field with a starting point to their career. It provides a greater understanding of what is involved and the further education options available.

The course is a comprehensive resource to parents whose children are working with a speech therapist, and also educators and carers who wish to be able to recognise and understand speech and hearing disorders.

5. Speech Therapy: Learn Practices That Assists People With Speech And Language Disorders

Speech Therapy is a practice that assists people with speech and language disorders or who have trouble swallowing. This course takes you through the role of a speech therapist, the anatomical structures and physiological functions of speech and hearing, phonetics, language development and speech disorders, the structure of language, and career paths in this field.

The Speech Therapy Course introduces the subject by outlining the basics. It provides an overview of speech disorders and the therapeutic practices used to treat them. You’ll learn about the role of a speech therapist and the conditions and areas of communication that they focus on. You will be provided with in-depth listing of pathological terms that are used amongst speech and language professionals.

To understand speech you need a good level of knowledge about the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the speech organs. This course will talk you through these and the respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory systems, which all have a bearing on speech.

Similarly, you will learn about audiology. The course talks you through the structures and functions belonging to the auditory system and explains the physiology of hearing. There are numerous tests and screening protocols in the UK used to screen and assess children with suspected hearing disorders. You will learn about these and the signs that could indicate hearing loss, which would require an audiology assessment referral.

How we develop speech and the different stages we go through to learn and process language is a fascinating topic. You will discover the various stages that exist within linguistic advancement in monolingual and bilingual children.

Equally as interesting is Phonetics (the study of human speech sounds). The Speech Therapy Course breaks the topic down into its three branches and explains each fully:

  • Articulatory Phonetics: The study of the way in which speech sounds are produced
  • Acoustic Phonetics: Analyses the physical properties of speech
  • Auditory Phonetics: Illustrates the ways in which sound is perceived

Speech Perception, which deals with one’s comprehension of what is being said, is also covered.

The course considers the structure of language, described through morphology, syntax and semantics. In addition to looking at each of these areas you’ll see how children apply the rules that determine speech and language, the common errors they may make and the errors that are symptomatic of speech and communication disorders.

The Speech Therapy Course provides a deep exploration into various conditions that can affect the development of speech and language and how this manifests itself in each case. The conditions covered include neurological disorders, brain injury, drug abuse, intellectual disabilities, vocal abuse, autism and apraxia, plus physical impairments. The course also explains how the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) uses pictorials as a form of treatment of autistic children experiencing speech impairment issues.

For those considering a career as a speech therapist, the course provides information on, and examples of, the various positions and working environments that speech and language therapists may practice in. In each example, duties and responsibilities that occur within these departments are described.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Speech Therapy Course offers valuable insight into the practice of speech therapy, providing those who wish to work within the field with a starting point to their career. It provides a greater understanding of what is involved and the further education options available.

The course is a comprehensive resource to parents whose children are working with a speech therapist, and also educators and carers who wish to be able to recognise and understand speech and hearing disorders.
