The purpose of this module is to explore theory and practice related to the teaching and learning of students with special educational needs and disabilities. There are two interrelating elements to the module: first, you will study different theories, concepts and practices such as categorising SEN, pedagogy, assessment, and differentiation; second, you will consider different types of special educational need, for example, dyslexia, learning difficulties, autism. The activities during the module will help bring these two aspects together.

This is an optional module offered as part of the Online MSc Psychology Conversion Programme. The module is ideally suited to those who might be considering pursuing a career in Educational Psychology.
