About the course

If you wish to embrace the opportunity to work with children with special needs, you can fulfil your wish by becoming a teaching assistant - a key part of a positive, well-led classroom that is a happy environment in which a child can flourish. You can face certain challenges in dealing with special needs children, their parents and key workers who care for them - but special needs has taken on a whole new meaning as they are now included in regular classrooms. By doing this course, you will be able to identify the special educational needs and disabilities and connect with the children in the classroom, helping them to effectively manage their needs and reach their full potential.
