Event Details

This workshop has been designed for teachers and other educational practitioners who have a basic understanding of dyspraxia and want to further develop their knowledge.

By examining a range of tools and techniques designed to support students with dyspraxia, participants will enhance their understanding of this disability and of the key interventions and strategies available to support pupils overcome this barrier to learning.

By the end of the session, participants will have confidence in their capacity to help their students with dyspraxia enjoy lessons and succeed in class.

Workshop leader Karen Ferguson is the Founder and Principal Trainer for Linrow Education. Karen started teaching science at a mainstream secondary school in 2000. She then moved into the SEND environment working with children and parents to help them overcome their disabilities and give them the skills to achieve their full potential. Karen was appointed as a Specialist Leader in Education for Autism and this allowed her to disseminate good practice and deliver SEND training. She offers various condition specific training, including ASC, ADHD and Dyslexia.

Karen has continued her personal professional development over the years: she has a Masters Degree in Education and Level 2 Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and PDA qualifications. She is currently working towards her Doctorate in Education.

Karen believes that a better understanding of SEND and complex needs can be achieved through information sharing and is committed to ensuring that quality education is available to all.
