Feedback from Previous Course Participants

Don’t just take it from us!

“I was pleased that it reassured me we are going the right thing. It has also given me ideas to implement for example touch typing to do with my son and when I am looking at apps/ books/ methods of learning. What I need to look out for to help him.”.


“The course was brilliant. Short with the right information of what to understand and help. I’m doing a course at the moment for SEN and the reading for each module is 84/85 pages before answering questions. It’s giving me no incentive to complete the course. This course was fun and enjoyable to do.”


“It was very useful and easy to understand, it also helped that it was visual rather than reading loads of information…..I’ve learnt how to support my son better and give the SENCO some strategies in how the school are able to support him.”
