While all our students have Specific educational needs, some of them may have Special Educational Needs.
One of the aims of the Poppies’ blog is to help English teachers, preparing or not for the Oposición to deal with their students’ specific and special educational needs. And this page will help you find the posts related to both specific and special educational needs better.
Special Educational Needs (SEN)
Students with Special Educational Needs are those who find it difficult to concentrate, understand things or have:
- behavioural problems
- problems to socialise
- difficulties with reading and writing
- a physical disability
So far, Poppies has published the following posts to help English teachers understand their students better so that you can cater for their Special Educational Needs:
Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
We started with an interview in 4 parts to Neuro-paediatrician Dr Fernández , who explained to us what ADHD is and how to deal with it:
- Part 1: What is ADHD.
- Part 2: How ADHD affects students’ learning process
- Part 3: How can teachers identify ADHD
- Part 4: How we can deal with ADHD in class
Come to this page from time to time, as we’ll be updating it!
