1. Autism Awareness: Everything That You Need To Know About Autism

This comprehensive best selling course, written and developed by a leading authority on Autism, will teach you everything that you need to know about Autism, what it is, how to spot the signs and symptoms, diagnosing Autism, the gender differences in Autism, treatments, therapies, interventions and strategies, how to make reasonable adjustments, adults and children with Autism and inclusion.

Autism is estimated to affect one in every hundred people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organised in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses has risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition.

2. Advanced Autism Awareness Practical Interventions and Support: Effective Therapeutic Approaches 

Written and developed by the well-respected authority on autism who authored our Autism Awareness Course, this course has been crafted to give guidance on effective therapeutic approaches that can make significant and positive differences to the quality of life of people with autism.

You will learn about 24 different therapies and interventions that parents can use, with Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and ABA covered extensively, along with strategies that can be put in place to help with behavioural issues. You will also learn why children with autism behave as they do, in the hope that it will help you to see things from their perspective and experience an almost first-person viewpoint of how it is to live with autism.

3. Downs Syndrome Awareness: Understand The Characteristics And Causes Of Down's Syndrome 

The Down's Syndrome Awareness Course provides an overview of the characteristics and causes of Down’s syndrome, together with practical, up-to-date information about the challenges people with this diagnosis face throughout their lives. Individuals with this condition can lead fuller, healthier lives than was previously possible. This is partly thanks to the increased awareness and support structures that you will learn about in the course.

The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course outlines the physical and mental characteristics of the condition and explains the causes, risk factors, medical complications that can occur, and how it is diagnosed.

You’ll learn how to support someone with Down’s syndrome throughout their lives, as you explore how their needs change as they grow and develop. The course guides you through this, step-by-step, starting with the sometimes-controversial issue of prenatal testing for the condition, which explains the test and the ethical issues that surround it.

In addition to the usual needs of babies and young children, those with Down’s syndrome face specific issues, such as problems with digestion and temperature regulation. There is also a degree of learning disability, so babies with Down’s syndrome will experience developmental delays. You’ll learn how parents can overcome their anxieties and raise healthy, happy children.

Early intervention and support are key to help a child with Down’s syndrome to reach their full potential. Through studying the Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course, you will discover the support available to children and their families and the difference it can making in preparing them for school, engaging in relationships, and understanding the world around them.

As children with Down’s syndrome move into adolescence, again they have the same issues as typical teenagers, though they may require more assistance in understanding the changes they are going through. You’ll learn how to prepare a teenager to deal with the activities of adult life, including further education, forming relationships, and engaging in safe sex.

A big part of every child’s life is education. You’ll learn what to consider when deciding on the right kind of schooling for a child with Down’s syndrome, how they can be assisted in reaching their goals in the various stages of their education, and the qualifications available to them.

Further to this, you will explore the benefits of work, how to find suitable positions, and the kind of reasonable adjustments that a workplace can make in order to accommodate the needs of those with Down’s syndrome. The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course explains how equal opportunities legislation applies to those with learning disabilities and the specialist work schemes that aim to match people with suitable employers.

Just as there is educational support for people with Down’s syndrome, there is also support available for those who decide to move out of their family home. You’ll learn about the supported living options available, what they involve, and how the transition from the family home to a new residence is managed.

An increasing number of people with Down’s syndrome are living into their sixties and seventies. The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course considers the challenges being faced by this group and the practical interventions that may be necessary, along with how these interventions may have to be administered.

4. Pathological Demand Avoidance: Understand what PDA Autism is all about

A pervasive developmental disorder that is common in individuals on the autistic spectrum, pathological demand avoidance (PDA) is characterised by an avoidance of demand-framed requests by an individual and causes difficulties with social communication and interaction with others. Take the Pathological Demand Avoidance Course and you’ll learn support structures and effective strategies to aid young children and adolescents with the condition.

What will you learn with our Pathological Demand Avoidance Online Course?

  • The course begins by covering what Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is and how to recognise the features and characteristics of a person who has it. The differences between PDA and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) are highlighted and the process of getting a PDA diagnosis is defined.
  • The course explores the history of pathological demand avoidance, which only became a named condition in the 1980s and has only quite recently (2000 onwards) gained more focus and awareness, and introduces key figures within the field. You’ll read through 2 cases studies and a parent’s insight, to give you a better understanding of PDA and what living with a child with the condition is like.
  • As a pervasive developmental disorder that often co-occurs with the diagnosis of autism, it is important that you understand what it means to be on the autism spectrum. The Pathological Demand Avoidance Course explains the characteristics and difficulties that can occur with autism, how it is diagnosed and covers Asperger syndrome - a milder form of autism.
  • Many, if not all, people on the autistic spectrum also suffer from sensory processing disorder (SPD) to varying degrees. You’ll learn more about SPD, the signs that may indicate specific difficulties a child may be having, and gain an understanding of what it is like to have sensory processing disorder.
  • As with other autism spectrum disorder profiles, pathological demand avoidance is dimensional, so its effects can be greater or lesser in each individual. No matter the severity of the condition, it is still important to be able to identify the triggers and have strategies in place to avoid these or provide the right kind of support when they do occur.
  • This course provides advice and guidance to parents, siblings, and educators on how to get the most from a child with the condition. You’ll also learn the benefits of working with a Key Worker and the key skills and strategies they will need to help a child with PDA to reach their full potential.

 Benefits of Taking This Course

  • The Pathological Demand Avoidance Course is suitable for anybody who wishes to understand PDA, whether it be to understand your own child, a relation, friend, pupil or someone in your care. With an improved understanding of the condition and a variety of effective strategies that can be put in place, this course will help you to make a positive difference to the child, children or adolescents you care or work with.

5. ADHD Awareness: Understanding Of ADHD

To understand the condition, we must first understand what it is. Students will learn, about symptoms, related conditions, variations of the condition, and more.

Although the most commonly diagnosed, and one of the most highly-researched, mental health disorders in children, there is still a lot to understand about the cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The ADHD Awareness Course shares some of the most recent research and information, so that students can get a better grasp of what is, and isn’t.

A very important consideration for those caring for those with, or who themselves have, ADHD, is the considerations and implications of the law and educational institutes. The course discusses how ADHD, as a neurological difficulty rather than a physical disability, is treated within these communities.

Who would benefit from this course?

The ADHD Awareness Course is an essential source of information for the parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the educators and carers who work with children with the condition, or would like to.

This course will help students to fully understand the condition, how it is considered by various communities and treated within the medical professions, how to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate a child’s learning, and how to better understand a child, or adult, with ADHD and alter your own behaviour to better communicate with them.

This does not mean that the course is restricted to these groups, however, anyone interested in the various aspects of the condition will learn a lot here.

6. Aspergers Awareness: Enhance Your Relationships With Individuals Affected By Asperger Syndrome

The Asperger Awareness Certificate Course will guide you through a history of the awareness of the syndrome and how perceptions have changed, how it is defined, and what differentiates it from other autistic spectrum disorders. You will learn how it is diagnosed, how gender determines presentation of the condition, and the myths and fallacies about Asperger.

The course looks at the academic and professional lives of those with Aspergers – explaining the implications from their perspective, in school, university, and working environments. Also covered are issues such as behavioural, learning and organisational difficulties, bullying, and inclusion. You will also learn how to get the best from a person with Asperger in the workplace.

The course goes further into the complications that can arise as a result of living with Asperger Syndrome, which include an increased likelihood of suffering from mental health problems and feeling these differently than neurotypical people. The course explores how people with Asperger are affected by anxiety, sensory overload, anger, OCD and PTSD, as well as looking at other common conditions of the syndrome such as Sensory Processing Disorder, intrusive negative thoughts, elective mutism, and issues with anger.

Who would benefit from this course?

Anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of the symptoms, immediate effects and further consequences of Asperger Syndrome, will gain a lot from studying this course.

The course is particularly beneficial to family members who may be struggling to cope and need additional guidance. Co-workers and employers will improve their ability to communicate and recognise individual strengths of those with the condition. Teachers and support staff in educational institutes will be able to identify the characteristics of Asperger, provide support to parents, and adjust the learning environment to suit.

7. Cerebral Palsy Awareness: Understanding Of The Wider Scope Of Cerebral Palsy

Over the years, treatments for persons with Cerebral Palsy have become increasingly more progressive. The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Certificate Course looks at treatments from both traditional and complementary medicine. With more options than ever before, these treatments can lead to less pain, reduced spasticity, a higher level of independent movement, and a sense of being able to participate more fully in life than ever before.

Learning how to deal with the day-to-day is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the benefits of having a support system in place, should extra help be needed, and details self-advocacy techniques and strategies that can be used to build confidence and independence. You will also learn about the 6 major aspects of life in which a sense of wellbeing can enable a person to make positive changes.

Knowing your rights is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the wider world of disability rights, the law, and strategies/accommodations that can ensure the best possible integration in school and work environments.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Certificate Course offers knowledge and practical advice both to those living with the condition and practitioners who work with people who have Cerebral Palsy.

The course will also be of interest to friends and family members of those who have Cerebral Palsy and anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in this area.

8. Understanding Dyslexia: Learn How To Better Comprehend Dyslexia 

The Understanding Dyslexia Course helps students to better comprehend dyslexia, as well as how it can affect a child’s self-esteem, how to identify it, and importantly it covers the many ways in which teaching can be adapted to help a dyslexic learner.

Unless you yourself or someone close to you has dyslexia or if you teach those with the learning difficulty, it is often misunderstood and can actually go undiagnosed for some time, as it is seen as an “invisible” difficulty.

Developmental Dyslexia (more commonly known as simply “Dyslexia”) is a Specific Learning Difficulty that affects the way the brain processes language, making it difficult for those affected to acquire skills in reading, writing and spelling, though it does not affect a person’s intelligence. The Understanding Dyslexia Course begins by introducing students to dyslexia, how those with the condition are affected, and the causes.

We discuss ‘Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD)’ and how those with dyslexia are often affected by more than just the one condition. Here other SpLDs are outlined and students will learn how they can recognise and support a child with these various conditions.

As students begin to understand how a child with dyslexia may be feeling, the course also shows how to support children emotionally, with tools and techniques to increase their self-worth and regain positivity.

You will learn how to identify and diagnose dyslexia in both children and adults. This includes common behaviours that can be noted in undiagnosed children, including how they often hide symptoms, as well as various tests that can be undertaken.

The Understanding Dyslexia Course informs students about the importance of inclusion and what this means. Also in this module Special Educational Need or Disabilities in the law are discussed, both from parents and educational establishment’s point of view, and how the relationship between both can benefit the child.

At the point which a child is diagnosed with dyslexia and is receiving an education adapted to his or her needs, it is important for their educators (both in school and at home) to understand literacy. The course talks in great depth about literacy and includes discussion on the importance of literacy, methods to teach the subject, the various parts of the subject, and includes various studies into the topic.

You will learn key areas that those with dyslexia can struggle with and shows how they can be overcome. These are Memory, Concentration, and Organisation, as well as an additional section named ‘Other Strategies that can Help’.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Understanding Dyslexia Course is actually something that could benefit most people as, whether you know it or not, you probably know someone who is dyslexic and this knowledge will help you to better understand them and how they learn.

More specifically the course will benefit parents who either have a dyslexia-diagnosed child or think that they’re child may have the condition or the other SpLDs (Specific Learning Difficulty) covered in the course. Educators at all levels will also learn a lot from the course and being at the forefront of education are in the unique position to recognise symptoms and to either alter their teaching or aid children and their parents to find appropriate learning opportunities.

Similarly, anyone already working with dyslexic children, or who would like to, could gain a lot from enrolling on this course.

9. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

10. Children and Young People's Mental Health and Wellness: Learn Mental Health In This Age Group

Over half of all cases of mental ill-health start before the age of 14. This course examines mental health in this age group, the policies and services on offer, how and why certain people are affected, and what can be done by schools and individuals to provide intervention, prevention and support.

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Certificate Course opens by laying out the landscape of mental health policies and government legislation available for children and young people’s mental health, and the education policy with regards to the same. You’ll explore prevalence rates and statistics for children and young people’s mental health and gain awareness of the gap in available treatment.

Mental health problems often start to develop in childhood and adolescence. The problem is that it can be difficult to distinguish between the signs of an emerging problem or disorder and ordinary, everyday challenging behaviour. This has made specialist support for this age group vital. This course will show how to identify both the most and lesser common mental health problems that children and young people experience today.

Several vulnerable groups of children and young people exist who are found to be at an increased risk of developing mental health problems and who may find more difficulty in accessing support. The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Certificate Course discusses these groups in detail.

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are NHS specialist services that assess and treat children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Studying this course, you will discover the current service provision for children and young people by CAMHS and Inpatient Services, as well as the problems faced by these providers and their proposed plans for the future.

Mental health problems have a complex range of causes, biological, psychological and social, which can see certain children being at greater risk than others. Conversely, protective factors are characteristics that reduce the likelihood of poor mental health. In this course, you’ll examine a range of risk and protective factors that can influence the development of mental health problems in children and young people.

With the greatly increased use of social media by young people, concern has grown over its impact on various aspects of children and young people’s mental and physical health. This course analyses the relationship between internet use and mental health problems in children and young people and discusses the associated risks, alongside the positive benefits of internet use.

As your understanding of the topic increases, the course takes you through various approaches to assessing and treating children and young people for mental health concerns. It is important to understand that mental health problems in young people are idiosyncratic in nature and so they need to be treated in a way that is helpful to them personally – there is no “one size fits all”. You will also learn the importance of outcome monitoring and receiving feedback from the child or young person on the care they’ve received.

Half of mental health problems start before the age of 14, meaning schools are in a vital position to prevent mental health problems, reduce stigma and employ policies to prevent bullying and discrimination. You’ll learn the about the many ways schools can support children and young people experiencing mental health problems. In addition to this, you’ll look at the benefits of peer support in schools and school-based counselling and how these forms of early intervention can help to prevent the development of mental health problems.

Autism is estimated to affect one in every hundred people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organised in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses has risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition.

2. Advanced Autism Awareness Practical Interventions and Support: Effective Therapeutic Approaches 

Written and developed by the well-respected authority on autism who authored our Autism Awareness Course, this course has been crafted to give guidance on effective therapeutic approaches that can make significant and positive differences to the quality of life of people with autism.

You will learn about 24 different therapies and interventions that parents can use, with Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and ABA covered extensively, along with strategies that can be put in place to help with behavioural issues. You will also learn why children with autism behave as they do, in the hope that it will help you to see things from their perspective and experience an almost first-person viewpoint of how it is to live with autism.

3. Downs Syndrome Awareness: Understand The Characteristics And Causes Of Down's Syndrome 

The Down's Syndrome Awareness Course provides an overview of the characteristics and causes of Down’s syndrome, together with practical, up-to-date information about the challenges people with this diagnosis face throughout their lives. Individuals with this condition can lead fuller, healthier lives than was previously possible. This is partly thanks to the increased awareness and support structures that you will learn about in the course.

The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course outlines the physical and mental characteristics of the condition and explains the causes, risk factors, medical complications that can occur, and how it is diagnosed.

You’ll learn how to support someone with Down’s syndrome throughout their lives, as you explore how their needs change as they grow and develop. The course guides you through this, step-by-step, starting with the sometimes-controversial issue of prenatal testing for the condition, which explains the test and the ethical issues that surround it.

In addition to the usual needs of babies and young children, those with Down’s syndrome face specific issues, such as problems with digestion and temperature regulation. There is also a degree of learning disability, so babies with Down’s syndrome will experience developmental delays. You’ll learn how parents can overcome their anxieties and raise healthy, happy children.

Early intervention and support are key to help a child with Down’s syndrome to reach their full potential. Through studying the Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course, you will discover the support available to children and their families and the difference it can making in preparing them for school, engaging in relationships, and understanding the world around them.

As children with Down’s syndrome move into adolescence, again they have the same issues as typical teenagers, though they may require more assistance in understanding the changes they are going through. You’ll learn how to prepare a teenager to deal with the activities of adult life, including further education, forming relationships, and engaging in safe sex.

A big part of every child’s life is education. You’ll learn what to consider when deciding on the right kind of schooling for a child with Down’s syndrome, how they can be assisted in reaching their goals in the various stages of their education, and the qualifications available to them.

Further to this, you will explore the benefits of work, how to find suitable positions, and the kind of reasonable adjustments that a workplace can make in order to accommodate the needs of those with Down’s syndrome. The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course explains how equal opportunities legislation applies to those with learning disabilities and the specialist work schemes that aim to match people with suitable employers.

Just as there is educational support for people with Down’s syndrome, there is also support available for those who decide to move out of their family home. You’ll learn about the supported living options available, what they involve, and how the transition from the family home to a new residence is managed.

An increasing number of people with Down’s syndrome are living into their sixties and seventies. The Down’s Syndrome Awareness Course considers the challenges being faced by this group and the practical interventions that may be necessary, along with how these interventions may have to be administered.

4. Pathological Demand Avoidance: Understand what PDA Autism is all about

A pervasive developmental disorder that is common in individuals on the autistic spectrum, pathological demand avoidance (PDA) is characterised by an avoidance of demand-framed requests by an individual and causes difficulties with social communication and interaction with others. Take the Pathological Demand Avoidance Course and you’ll learn support structures and effective strategies to aid young children and adolescents with the condition.

What will you learn with our Pathological Demand Avoidance Online Course?

  • The course begins by covering what Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) is and how to recognise the features and characteristics of a person who has it. The differences between PDA and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) are highlighted and the process of getting a PDA diagnosis is defined.
  • The course explores the history of pathological demand avoidance, which only became a named condition in the 1980s and has only quite recently (2000 onwards) gained more focus and awareness, and introduces key figures within the field. You’ll read through 2 cases studies and a parent’s insight, to give you a better understanding of PDA and what living with a child with the condition is like.
  • As a pervasive developmental disorder that often co-occurs with the diagnosis of autism, it is important that you understand what it means to be on the autism spectrum. The Pathological Demand Avoidance Course explains the characteristics and difficulties that can occur with autism, how it is diagnosed and covers Asperger syndrome - a milder form of autism.
  • Many, if not all, people on the autistic spectrum also suffer from sensory processing disorder (SPD) to varying degrees. You’ll learn more about SPD, the signs that may indicate specific difficulties a child may be having, and gain an understanding of what it is like to have sensory processing disorder.
  • As with other autism spectrum disorder profiles, pathological demand avoidance is dimensional, so its effects can be greater or lesser in each individual. No matter the severity of the condition, it is still important to be able to identify the triggers and have strategies in place to avoid these or provide the right kind of support when they do occur.
  • This course provides advice and guidance to parents, siblings, and educators on how to get the most from a child with the condition. You’ll also learn the benefits of working with a Key Worker and the key skills and strategies they will need to help a child with PDA to reach their full potential.

 Benefits of Taking This Course

  • The Pathological Demand Avoidance Course is suitable for anybody who wishes to understand PDA, whether it be to understand your own child, a relation, friend, pupil or someone in your care. With an improved understanding of the condition and a variety of effective strategies that can be put in place, this course will help you to make a positive difference to the child, children or adolescents you care or work with.

5. ADHD Awareness: Understanding Of ADHD

To understand the condition, we must first understand what it is. Students will learn, about symptoms, related conditions, variations of the condition, and more.

Although the most commonly diagnosed, and one of the most highly-researched, mental health disorders in children, there is still a lot to understand about the cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The ADHD Awareness Course shares some of the most recent research and information, so that students can get a better grasp of what is, and isn’t.

A very important consideration for those caring for those with, or who themselves have, ADHD, is the considerations and implications of the law and educational institutes. The course discusses how ADHD, as a neurological difficulty rather than a physical disability, is treated within these communities.

Who would benefit from this course?

The ADHD Awareness Course is an essential source of information for the parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the educators and carers who work with children with the condition, or would like to.

This course will help students to fully understand the condition, how it is considered by various communities and treated within the medical professions, how to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate a child’s learning, and how to better understand a child, or adult, with ADHD and alter your own behaviour to better communicate with them.

This does not mean that the course is restricted to these groups, however, anyone interested in the various aspects of the condition will learn a lot here.

6. Aspergers Awareness: Enhance Your Relationships With Individuals Affected By Asperger Syndrome

The Asperger Awareness Certificate Course will guide you through a history of the awareness of the syndrome and how perceptions have changed, how it is defined, and what differentiates it from other autistic spectrum disorders. You will learn how it is diagnosed, how gender determines presentation of the condition, and the myths and fallacies about Asperger.

The course looks at the academic and professional lives of those with Aspergers – explaining the implications from their perspective, in school, university, and working environments. Also covered are issues such as behavioural, learning and organisational difficulties, bullying, and inclusion. You will also learn how to get the best from a person with Asperger in the workplace.

The course goes further into the complications that can arise as a result of living with Asperger Syndrome, which include an increased likelihood of suffering from mental health problems and feeling these differently than neurotypical people. The course explores how people with Asperger are affected by anxiety, sensory overload, anger, OCD and PTSD, as well as looking at other common conditions of the syndrome such as Sensory Processing Disorder, intrusive negative thoughts, elective mutism, and issues with anger.

Who would benefit from this course?

Anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of the symptoms, immediate effects and further consequences of Asperger Syndrome, will gain a lot from studying this course.

The course is particularly beneficial to family members who may be struggling to cope and need additional guidance. Co-workers and employers will improve their ability to communicate and recognise individual strengths of those with the condition. Teachers and support staff in educational institutes will be able to identify the characteristics of Asperger, provide support to parents, and adjust the learning environment to suit.

7. Cerebral Palsy Awareness: Understanding Of The Wider Scope Of Cerebral Palsy

Over the years, treatments for persons with Cerebral Palsy have become increasingly more progressive. The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Certificate Course looks at treatments from both traditional and complementary medicine. With more options than ever before, these treatments can lead to less pain, reduced spasticity, a higher level of independent movement, and a sense of being able to participate more fully in life than ever before.

Learning how to deal with the day-to-day is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the benefits of having a support system in place, should extra help be needed, and details self-advocacy techniques and strategies that can be used to build confidence and independence. You will also learn about the 6 major aspects of life in which a sense of wellbeing can enable a person to make positive changes.

Knowing your rights is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the wider world of disability rights, the law, and strategies/accommodations that can ensure the best possible integration in school and work environments.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Certificate Course offers knowledge and practical advice both to those living with the condition and practitioners who work with people who have Cerebral Palsy.

The course will also be of interest to friends and family members of those who have Cerebral Palsy and anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in this area.

8. Understanding Dyslexia: Learn How To Better Comprehend Dyslexia 

The Understanding Dyslexia Course helps students to better comprehend dyslexia, as well as how it can affect a child’s self-esteem, how to identify it, and importantly it covers the many ways in which teaching can be adapted to help a dyslexic learner.

Unless you yourself or someone close to you has dyslexia or if you teach those with the learning difficulty, it is often misunderstood and can actually go undiagnosed for some time, as it is seen as an “invisible” difficulty.

Developmental Dyslexia (more commonly known as simply “Dyslexia”) is a Specific Learning Difficulty that affects the way the brain processes language, making it difficult for those affected to acquire skills in reading, writing and spelling, though it does not affect a person’s intelligence. The Understanding Dyslexia Course begins by introducing students to dyslexia, how those with the condition are affected, and the causes.

We discuss ‘Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD)’ and how those with dyslexia are often affected by more than just the one condition. Here other SpLDs are outlined and students will learn how they can recognise and support a child with these various conditions.

As students begin to understand how a child with dyslexia may be feeling, the course also shows how to support children emotionally, with tools and techniques to increase their self-worth and regain positivity.

You will learn how to identify and diagnose dyslexia in both children and adults. This includes common behaviours that can be noted in undiagnosed children, including how they often hide symptoms, as well as various tests that can be undertaken.

The Understanding Dyslexia Course informs students about the importance of inclusion and what this means. Also in this module Special Educational Need or Disabilities in the law are discussed, both from parents and educational establishment’s point of view, and how the relationship between both can benefit the child.

At the point which a child is diagnosed with dyslexia and is receiving an education adapted to his or her needs, it is important for their educators (both in school and at home) to understand literacy. The course talks in great depth about literacy and includes discussion on the importance of literacy, methods to teach the subject, the various parts of the subject, and includes various studies into the topic.

You will learn key areas that those with dyslexia can struggle with and shows how they can be overcome. These are Memory, Concentration, and Organisation, as well as an additional section named ‘Other Strategies that can Help’.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Understanding Dyslexia Course is actually something that could benefit most people as, whether you know it or not, you probably know someone who is dyslexic and this knowledge will help you to better understand them and how they learn.

More specifically the course will benefit parents who either have a dyslexia-diagnosed child or think that they’re child may have the condition or the other SpLDs (Specific Learning Difficulty) covered in the course. Educators at all levels will also learn a lot from the course and being at the forefront of education are in the unique position to recognise symptoms and to either alter their teaching or aid children and their parents to find appropriate learning opportunities.

Similarly, anyone already working with dyslexic children, or who would like to, could gain a lot from enrolling on this course.

9. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

10. Children and Young People's Mental Health and Wellness: Learn Mental Health In This Age Group

Over half of all cases of mental ill-health start before the age of 14. This course examines mental health in this age group, the policies and services on offer, how and why certain people are affected, and what can be done by schools and individuals to provide intervention, prevention and support.

The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Certificate Course opens by laying out the landscape of mental health policies and government legislation available for children and young people’s mental health, and the education policy with regards to the same. You’ll explore prevalence rates and statistics for children and young people’s mental health and gain awareness of the gap in available treatment.

Mental health problems often start to develop in childhood and adolescence. The problem is that it can be difficult to distinguish between the signs of an emerging problem or disorder and ordinary, everyday challenging behaviour. This has made specialist support for this age group vital. This course will show how to identify both the most and lesser common mental health problems that children and young people experience today.

Several vulnerable groups of children and young people exist who are found to be at an increased risk of developing mental health problems and who may find more difficulty in accessing support. The Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellness Certificate Course discusses these groups in detail.

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) are NHS specialist services that assess and treat children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Studying this course, you will discover the current service provision for children and young people by CAMHS and Inpatient Services, as well as the problems faced by these providers and their proposed plans for the future.

Mental health problems have a complex range of causes, biological, psychological and social, which can see certain children being at greater risk than others. Conversely, protective factors are characteristics that reduce the likelihood of poor mental health. In this course, you’ll examine a range of risk and protective factors that can influence the development of mental health problems in children and young people.

With the greatly increased use of social media by young people, concern has grown over its impact on various aspects of children and young people’s mental and physical health. This course analyses the relationship between internet use and mental health problems in children and young people and discusses the associated risks, alongside the positive benefits of internet use.

As your understanding of the topic increases, the course takes you through various approaches to assessing and treating children and young people for mental health concerns. It is important to understand that mental health problems in young people are idiosyncratic in nature and so they need to be treated in a way that is helpful to them personally – there is no “one size fits all”. You will also learn the importance of outcome monitoring and receiving feedback from the child or young person on the care they’ve received.

Half of mental health problems start before the age of 14, meaning schools are in a vital position to prevent mental health problems, reduce stigma and employ policies to prevent bullying and discrimination. You’ll learn the about the many ways schools can support children and young people experiencing mental health problems. In addition to this, you’ll look at the benefits of peer support in schools and school-based counselling and how these forms of early intervention can help to prevent the development of mental health problems.
