The language of an inclusive curriculum
The language of an inclusive curriculum (Code: C1040)

The language we use directly impacts on our learners, our colleagues and our communities from first contact to progression via our curriculum. This means the words we use to describe our learners, our teaching and learning practices and our policies and procedures matter.  

The language of inclusion changed dramatically throughout the 20th century and with the Equality Act 2010 and Code of Practice in 2014 it has gathered pace in the 21st. For this reason, this session starts with a very brief history of inclusion.

Join us to discuss just what to say and when for inclusion.

Understanding Developmental Trauma in the SEND Classroom. What is trauma, what are the visible and hidden impacts and how can organisations support learners and employees using a trauma-informed approach?
Understanding Developmental Trauma in the SEND Classroom. What is trauma, what are the visible and hidden impacts and how can organisations support learners and employees using a trauma-informed approach? (Code: C0864)

Young people who have experienced poor attachment histories and/or adverse childhood experiences are at risk of developing trauma symptoms. Ongoing trauma will affect the healthy development of the brain and nervous system resulting in possible learning impairment, poor emotion control, hyper-arousal or dissociative states. Educators need to respond to learners in order to promote a sense of safety and connection whilst supporting them to regulate emotion, so learning can take place.
