2. Speech Therapy: Learn Practices That Assists People With Speech And Language Disorders

Speech Therapy is a practice that assists people with speech and language disorders or who have trouble swallowing. This course takes you through the role of a speech therapist, the anatomical structures and physiological functions of speech and hearing, phonetics, language development and speech disorders, the structure of language, and career paths in this field.

The Speech Therapy Course introduces the subject by outlining the basics. It provides an overview of speech disorders and the therapeutic practices used to treat them. You’ll learn about the role of a speech therapist and the conditions and areas of communication that they focus on. You will be provided with in-depth listing of pathological terms that are used amongst speech and language professionals.

To understand speech you need a good level of knowledge about the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the speech organs. This course will talk you through these and the respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory systems, which all have a bearing on speech.

Similarly, you will learn about audiology. The course talks you through the structures and functions belonging to the auditory system and explains the physiology of hearing. There are numerous tests and screening protocols in the UK used to screen and assess children with suspected hearing disorders. You will learn about these and the signs that could indicate hearing loss, which would require an audiology assessment referral.

How we develop speech and the different stages we go through to learn and process language is a fascinating topic. You will discover the various stages that exist within linguistic advancement in monolingual and bilingual children.

Equally as interesting is Phonetics (the study of human speech sounds). The Speech Therapy Course breaks the topic down into its three branches and explains each fully:

  • Articulatory Phonetics: The study of the way in which speech sounds are produced
  • Acoustic Phonetics: Analyses the physical properties of speech
  • Auditory Phonetics: Illustrates the ways in which sound is perceived

Speech Perception, which deals with one’s comprehension of what is being said, is also covered.

The course considers the structure of language, described through morphology, syntax and semantics. In addition to looking at each of these areas you’ll see how children apply the rules that determine speech and language, the common errors they may make and the errors that are symptomatic of speech and communication disorders.

The Speech Therapy Course provides a deep exploration into various conditions that can affect the development of speech and language and how this manifests itself in each case. The conditions covered include neurological disorders, brain injury, drug abuse, intellectual disabilities, vocal abuse, autism and apraxia, plus physical impairments. The course also explains how the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) uses pictorials as a form of treatment of autistic children experiencing speech impairment issues.

For those considering a career as a speech therapist, the course provides information on, and examples of, the various positions and working environments that speech and language therapists may practice in. In each example, duties and responsibilities that occur within these departments are described.

3. Speed Reading: Learn Speed Reading Techniques And Practices

The Speed Reading Course provides instruction in speed reading techniques, with a full range of approaches to improving reading speed and increasing comprehension.

The result of learning these techniques is that students will be able to gain extra focus and control, which will aid in academia, professional life, business, and personal development.

Each module of the course is set up to align students with clearly set, real-world goals, achieved by working through and regularly practising techniques. These start early on in the course and continue through, enabling constant practice. To ensure students gain understanding and get results, the course includes worksheets and practice exercises, and key concepts are illustrated with examples throughout.

An introduction to speed reading, providing definitions and stating its significance in various aspects of life, as well as giving a brief history of the subject, with information on its advocates, researchers, and place in contemporary life.

Additionally, you will learn advantages gained by learning speed reading and applications for these skills. We will look at the trade-off between speed and comprehension, and how to decide which is the most important at which times.

The learning curve of the Speed Reading Course will be different for each individual. Looking at key factors influencing the learning curve of this course, but that no matter the initial starting level, with a reasonable amount of time designated and consistent effort, almost anyone can become a speed reader. We help you understand your own goals for the course.

You will understand the sequential progression providing the blueprint for cultivating a full understanding of speed reading. Students will learn how to preview texts for a quick overview of the main points. The importance of pre-viewing texts and how to get the maximum value from this skill before reading the entire text.

Students will learn through timing their reading, with and without using the techniques learned, and checking gains in speed, whilst retaining comprehension. Also, highlighted is how to adapt to various texts, knowing when to slow down to gain comprehension with complex texts or speed up to get through other texts quicker.

‘Skimming’ is explained, it includes how to use annotation to make it quicker to skim text again and using repetition to make gains. The course takes this concept further, teaching how to improve comprehension further, and culminates in 3 practice passages, to work through, using the methods taught.

4. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is 

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

5. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

6. Home Education: Learn The Pros And Cons Of Home-Schooling 

The Home Education Course helps students to understand how to go about educating their children themselves. The comprehensive materials will answer most, if not all, of your questions about the topic, including the pros and cons of home-schooling.

With 5 million children worldwide being home educated, more parents are exercising their right to educate their children themselves.

Students will learn how to begin home schooling your child, as well as letting you know what is required of you to do so and informing you of any educational bodies who you may, or may not, need to inform of your decision.

The Home Education Course outlines the positives, as well as the negatives, so that parents can make an informed decision on whether this is the best fit for them and their children.

‘Home Education’ does not mean one single way of teaching a child, but is rather a spectrum term that includes many different methods and theories to provide an education that fits their child. As a home educator, you can adapt your teaching to the way your child learns, so that they gain the most from the learning experience. The Home Education Course covers the various ways of learning, going through each of the following: Visual / Spatial, Verbal / Linguistic, Aural (Auditory/Musical), Physical / Kinaesthetic, Solitary (Intrapersonal), Social (Interpersonal), Logical / Mathematics, and Naturalist learning.

You will need materials and resources with which to teach. Fortunately, you can pick and choose from all the materials available in the world. The course teaches parents about some of the more common types of materials and suggests other ways that lessons can be taught, to give a more involved learning experience.

Although the need to plan each lesson is not as great as in traditional education (as you will not be teaching 20-30 children), some lessons achieve their intention more succinctly by being planned. The course talks about which lessons lend themselves well to being planned and provides several lesson plans covering different subjects, for parents to use and adapt to fit their children’s needs.

You may still have a number of questions on the subject of home education. We list some of the most common questions and answers them in-depth; dispelling the myths and incorrect beliefs surrounding the topic.

As the person who will be responsible for your children’s education, you need to be sure that it is the right choice, not only for your child/children and your family but also for you. The final module of the course talks parents through additional research, considerations, and questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to home educate.

The course ends with a conclusion and, although it is not a necessity for home educated children, a National Curriculum is also included, should some wish to use it as a way of determining when certain skills should be taught or learned.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Home Education Certificate Course is an excellent resource for parents who have been considering home schooling their child/children, as this course will answer their questions and provide a useful guide on how to get started. It is also ideal for parents who are already educating their children from home and want to improve or consolidate their existing teaching skills and experience.

7. Body Language: Help Better Understand What A Person Is Thinking

This fascinating course will help you to better understand what a person is thinking, what they really mean, far beyond what they are actually saying.

The ultimate aim of this course is to help you master the skills necessary to become a better communicator and reader of non-verbal communication. Through eight units of lessons you will learn how to become a master at reading micro-expressions in the face, as well as various movements of the entire body, to detect deception, to know when a person is truly remembering versus imagining, and so much more. This course provides an abundance of information that will help you understand what law enforcement agents and psychologists have known for decades – that by closely observing a person and knowing what to look for you can understand the underlying emotions that a person may be trying to hide.

Who would benefit from this course?

Through out this course you will read about the biology of non-verbal body language, and learn how you can apply it in real life. Through photographs and exercises, you will learn to recognize various signs and movements, and to interpret them. This knowledge can make you more effective in almost all areas of your life, your business and personal interactions and relationships.

8. Body Language for Flirting and Dating: Master the Secrets Of Non-Verbal Communication

Not many people understand that there’s more to communication than the words they utter. In fact, there were probably many times when you went out, spoke cleverly to someone, only to see them walk away or never hear from them again. No, it wasn’t something you said or even your breath; your missed opportunities and even high expectations are caused by your lack of knowledge of body language.

Had you been keenly observing her body language, you may have noticed that her eyes were wandering to find someone else and hook up with them. On the other hand, if you had a mirror nearby, you may have noticed that the way you kept on brushing against him or touching his arms may have scared him off since you appeared to be a little too clingy for his taste.

Reflect a little on your own dating history and you’re bound to find little signs of people liking you (or not) without you knowing. Therefore, if you don’t want to miss out on your Mr. or Miss Right or end up wasting days or years on someone who doesn’t really care, you need to be well-versed in the art of body language, micro expressions and facial expressions.

Luckily, this comprehensive course will teach you everything you need to understand both of these aspects to ensure that your flirting and dating are both successful in the long run.

9. Symbology: Learn How To Decipher The Meaning Of Modern And Ancient Symbols

Learn how to decipher the meaning of modern and ancient symbols, the mechanics of good symbol design, and how to go about setting up your own symbology practice, including guidance on the client sessions you can provide and how to grow your practice.

By taking the Symbology Certificate Course you’ll learn to become more perceptive of the symbols and codes that are all around us in our day-to-day lives, including how symbology can be found in body language, and how to uncover the messages behind them. This knowledge and wisdom is passed on through exploring how and why symbols have been used throughout history, the hidden meanings behind numbers and codes, and the meanings of common shapes that make up symbols and how differing combinations affect meaning.

The course examines the meaning of animal symbols and why animals are chosen to represent countries. The meaning of various flowers and how different colour combinations symbolise different things is also explained, along with why countries choose to be represented by certain flowers.

You’ll learn how current symbols are used and become widely-recognised, and the ways in which ancient symbols are incorporated into modern life, in buildings and bank notes. You’ll also see how symbols have a lifespan, with some that are used for a very short duration, while others reappear, sometimes with a different meaning.

The shapes, styles, and colours of symbols have great meaning that can change depending on your location, beliefs, and culture. The effects of these are discussed in the course, along with the symbols associated with various celebrations, events, and festivals across the globe.

Along with imbuing you with a greater knowledge of the subject, the course also explains how you can use this information to create your own symbology practice and the types of consultations and session work you can provide to clients. The course also runs through the practical aspects of building a business, such as the legal and insurance considerations, and what you need to set up your work and consultation space.

To give a greater understanding of the work of a Symbology Practitioner and what a good consultation looks like, you will be guided, step-by-step, through a real symbology session and an average day of someone working within the role.

You’ll explore methods of providing your services, the type of work opportunities available to a modern-day symbologist, how to grow your symbology practice, and how to gain and retain clients.

Who will benefit from the course?

The Symbology Certificate Course will be of interest to anyone who would like to understand the symbols that we find all around us, and would like to be able to uncover their meanings. Those who are fascinated by cryptology and graphic designers/illustrators looking for inspiration for their work, especially in logo design, will also benefit from taking this course.

Following the successful completion of this course, you will be able to go on to become a Symbologist/Symbology Practitioner and the course itself guides you through the process of setting up your own business and the types of work that you can offer to your clients.

10. Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness: Learn Everything You Need To Know About Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder describes a difference in the way that some people's senses are processed by the brain. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the condition, including the symptoms and behaviours associated with it, diagnosis, prevalence, history, therapies and interventions, and how you can provide support.

Although awareness has recently increased, it can still be difficult to get a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes it is particularly important to know the symptoms of the condition and the behaviours that present themselves in the young children and adults who suffer from it. The sooner it can be diagnosed, the better, as modifications to the environment can be made and the right support can be put in place before self-esteem and self-confidence issues arise. The course explains the common symptoms that can occur in children and adults and the ways in which these are often misinterpreted.

As getting a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder can sometimes be difficult, this course outlines the routes you may take in gaining help and the obstacles that you may come up against. The history of the condition is also explained, along with what research is being made into the causes of the condition and the differences in how its prevalence is perceived.

Currently, it is Occupational Therapists who are the leaders in the field, as far as intervention and therapy for those afflicted with Sensory Processing Disorder are concerned. The course looks further into this role, with an overview of how they work and what sort of therapies they may be able to offer. If you don’t have access to therapy, or would like advice on how you can be more involved with your child’s condition, the course also provides useful information in how you can provide support at home. Also included, are strategies that educators can implement in the classroom to enable effective learning to those with SPD.

2. Speech Therapy: Learn Practices That Assists People With Speech And Language Disorders

Speech Therapy is a practice that assists people with speech and language disorders or who have trouble swallowing. This course takes you through the role of a speech therapist, the anatomical structures and physiological functions of speech and hearing, phonetics, language development and speech disorders, the structure of language, and career paths in this field.

The Speech Therapy Course introduces the subject by outlining the basics. It provides an overview of speech disorders and the therapeutic practices used to treat them. You’ll learn about the role of a speech therapist and the conditions and areas of communication that they focus on. You will be provided with in-depth listing of pathological terms that are used amongst speech and language professionals.

To understand speech you need a good level of knowledge about the anatomical structures and physiological functions of the speech organs. This course will talk you through these and the respiratory, laryngeal, and articulatory systems, which all have a bearing on speech.

Similarly, you will learn about audiology. The course talks you through the structures and functions belonging to the auditory system and explains the physiology of hearing. There are numerous tests and screening protocols in the UK used to screen and assess children with suspected hearing disorders. You will learn about these and the signs that could indicate hearing loss, which would require an audiology assessment referral.

How we develop speech and the different stages we go through to learn and process language is a fascinating topic. You will discover the various stages that exist within linguistic advancement in monolingual and bilingual children.

Equally as interesting is Phonetics (the study of human speech sounds). The Speech Therapy Course breaks the topic down into its three branches and explains each fully:

  • Articulatory Phonetics: The study of the way in which speech sounds are produced
  • Acoustic Phonetics: Analyses the physical properties of speech
  • Auditory Phonetics: Illustrates the ways in which sound is perceived

Speech Perception, which deals with one’s comprehension of what is being said, is also covered.

The course considers the structure of language, described through morphology, syntax and semantics. In addition to looking at each of these areas you’ll see how children apply the rules that determine speech and language, the common errors they may make and the errors that are symptomatic of speech and communication disorders.

The Speech Therapy Course provides a deep exploration into various conditions that can affect the development of speech and language and how this manifests itself in each case. The conditions covered include neurological disorders, brain injury, drug abuse, intellectual disabilities, vocal abuse, autism and apraxia, plus physical impairments. The course also explains how the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) uses pictorials as a form of treatment of autistic children experiencing speech impairment issues.

For those considering a career as a speech therapist, the course provides information on, and examples of, the various positions and working environments that speech and language therapists may practice in. In each example, duties and responsibilities that occur within these departments are described.

3. Speed Reading: Learn Speed Reading Techniques And Practices

The Speed Reading Course provides instruction in speed reading techniques, with a full range of approaches to improving reading speed and increasing comprehension.

The result of learning these techniques is that students will be able to gain extra focus and control, which will aid in academia, professional life, business, and personal development.

Each module of the course is set up to align students with clearly set, real-world goals, achieved by working through and regularly practising techniques. These start early on in the course and continue through, enabling constant practice. To ensure students gain understanding and get results, the course includes worksheets and practice exercises, and key concepts are illustrated with examples throughout.

An introduction to speed reading, providing definitions and stating its significance in various aspects of life, as well as giving a brief history of the subject, with information on its advocates, researchers, and place in contemporary life.

Additionally, you will learn advantages gained by learning speed reading and applications for these skills. We will look at the trade-off between speed and comprehension, and how to decide which is the most important at which times.

The learning curve of the Speed Reading Course will be different for each individual. Looking at key factors influencing the learning curve of this course, but that no matter the initial starting level, with a reasonable amount of time designated and consistent effort, almost anyone can become a speed reader. We help you understand your own goals for the course.

You will understand the sequential progression providing the blueprint for cultivating a full understanding of speed reading. Students will learn how to preview texts for a quick overview of the main points. The importance of pre-viewing texts and how to get the maximum value from this skill before reading the entire text.

Students will learn through timing their reading, with and without using the techniques learned, and checking gains in speed, whilst retaining comprehension. Also, highlighted is how to adapt to various texts, knowing when to slow down to gain comprehension with complex texts or speed up to get through other texts quicker.

‘Skimming’ is explained, it includes how to use annotation to make it quicker to skim text again and using repetition to make gains. The course takes this concept further, teaching how to improve comprehension further, and culminates in 3 practice passages, to work through, using the methods taught.

4. Baby Sign Language: Learn Just What Baby Sign Language Is 

You’ll learn just what baby sign language is and how easily it can be used to establish communication between you and your child well before they start to speak. The history of baby language and the reasons it has come into popular usage are discussed. The course allays common misconceptions about teaching a child baby sign language and even outlines the benefits to both baby and you.

The great thing about this communication tool is that there is no right or wrong time to start, no ‘being behind’ or ‘too late’ (unless they’re already using speech to communicate), and you can start to establish baby signing from as early as 6 months, though they likely won’t sign until they’re closer to 8 or 9 months, or even at toddler age. Whatever you decide, this course shows you how to start implementing baby sign language, giving guidance on the process, and providing essential signs first: milk, eat, drink, more, done, mummy and daddy.

As with any learning process, there can be bumps in the road to mastery. The Baby Sign Language Course outlines some of the common problems that you may face as your baby learns to sign and how to work through them.

Fully-illustrated and broken down into categories, this course provides a vocabulary of some of the most important signs from the baby sign language repertoire. This is provided both as written descriptions with diagrams and as videos that visually illustrate how each sign should be enacted. In both instances, the vocabulary is categorised into the following sections: family, food, animals, play, directives and signs for social situations, and daily baby life signs.

Who would benefit from this course?

Those with babies and toddlers have the most to gain from this course, as it offers an easy to use communication tool between parent and child before the child is able to speak.

If you’re finding yourself frantically trying to understand why your baby is crying or your toddler is having a tantrum and nothing seems to be appeasing them, this will help them to tell you what they need.

The course also provides professional child-carers with an excellent tool to use in your role, that will enrich the lives of your clients and their children, and which will give you an extra edge over your competition.

Learning to sign also provides children with learning disabilities with an easy to learn communication tool that reduces the frustration and anger of not being able to express themselves and helps them to gain a better grasp of what’s being communicated by others.

5. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND): Gain Comprehensive Knowledge That Will Enable You To Utilise Teaching Methods

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is designed to arm its students with a comprehensive knowledge that will enable them to utilises a variety of teaching methods and practices to suit the different preferred learning styles of the children they teach.

Every child is different and has their own unique pattern of how they learn about the world around them. Good classroom teaching should use a variety of teaching methods to reflect the different preferred learning styles of the children in the class, and to enable every child to be able to engage in learning.

When a child has special educational needs or a disability, learning can be much harder and it doesn’t always happen as easily as it does for other children. Different styles of teaching, resources, additional equipment, or adaptations to the classroom may have to be made to enable children with additional needs in order for them to reach their full potential.

SEND – Special Educational Needs and Disability

Special Educational Needs and Disability is abbreviated to SEND, and this term will be used throughout this and the following modules of this course.

SEND education takes place in the context of current legislation, so the way it is implemented will alter from one country to the next, however, many of the principles are similar and there are commonalities in terms of best practice regardless of location.

What is a Special Educational Need or Disability?

The term “Special Educational Needs” has a legal definition that is covered by both The Education Act of 1996 and the more recent Children and Families Act of 2014. To have a Special Educational Need, a child must have a learning difficulty or learning disability that makes it significantly harder for them to learn or to access education compared to most children of the same age.

The term “Disability” also has a legal definition under the Equality Act 2010. A person has a disability if they have a physical or a mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” negative effect on their ability to do normal daily activities.

The terms “Substantial” and “Long-Term” are also defined within the same Act as being:

Substantial – more than minor or trivial. For instance, it would take someone significantly longer to complete a normal daily task such as getting dressed.

Long-term – is defined as lasting for more than 12 months.

Altogether, around 16% of all children and young people will be identified as having some form of SEN at some stage during their education, although most of them will have their educational needs successfully met within the mainstream classroom. Just over 1% of children will have a level of SEN that is so significant that they may need a specialist educational provision, such as attending a special school.

The is a lot of cross-over between special educational needs and disability, and many children who have a disability will also have an additional special educational need. However, this isn’t always the case, and every child’s need should be addressed individually.

There are many different types of educational need, and even with children who have broadly similar needs, the approaches each child will benefit from may vary widely. Here are some of the types of need that the term SEN covers:

  • A specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A learning disability, which can be mild, moderate, severe or profound and multiple
  • A Speech and Language Disorder
  • A Sensory Processing Disorder
  • An Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • A behavioural, emotional or social difficulty

There is sometimes confusion over the terms “Learning Difficulty” and “Learning Disability”. A learning difficulty normally refers to a specific aspect of learning, such as Dyslexia which affects the acquisition of reading skills. A Learning Disability normally refers to an Intellectual Impairment and there are different levels of Learning Disability depending on severity, ranging from Mild to Profound and Multiple.

However, many children have both a Learning Disability and at least one Learning Difficulty, as well as other disabilities or medical conditions.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Course is primarily suited to educators, parents, and those who care for children with special needs or disabilities. The course is also excellent for those who wish to begin a career within the education industry or who are interested in teaching theories and practices.

6. Home Education: Learn The Pros And Cons Of Home-Schooling 

The Home Education Course helps students to understand how to go about educating their children themselves. The comprehensive materials will answer most, if not all, of your questions about the topic, including the pros and cons of home-schooling.

With 5 million children worldwide being home educated, more parents are exercising their right to educate their children themselves.

Students will learn how to begin home schooling your child, as well as letting you know what is required of you to do so and informing you of any educational bodies who you may, or may not, need to inform of your decision.

The Home Education Course outlines the positives, as well as the negatives, so that parents can make an informed decision on whether this is the best fit for them and their children.

‘Home Education’ does not mean one single way of teaching a child, but is rather a spectrum term that includes many different methods and theories to provide an education that fits their child. As a home educator, you can adapt your teaching to the way your child learns, so that they gain the most from the learning experience. The Home Education Course covers the various ways of learning, going through each of the following: Visual / Spatial, Verbal / Linguistic, Aural (Auditory/Musical), Physical / Kinaesthetic, Solitary (Intrapersonal), Social (Interpersonal), Logical / Mathematics, and Naturalist learning.

You will need materials and resources with which to teach. Fortunately, you can pick and choose from all the materials available in the world. The course teaches parents about some of the more common types of materials and suggests other ways that lessons can be taught, to give a more involved learning experience.

Although the need to plan each lesson is not as great as in traditional education (as you will not be teaching 20-30 children), some lessons achieve their intention more succinctly by being planned. The course talks about which lessons lend themselves well to being planned and provides several lesson plans covering different subjects, for parents to use and adapt to fit their children’s needs.

You may still have a number of questions on the subject of home education. We list some of the most common questions and answers them in-depth; dispelling the myths and incorrect beliefs surrounding the topic.

As the person who will be responsible for your children’s education, you need to be sure that it is the right choice, not only for your child/children and your family but also for you. The final module of the course talks parents through additional research, considerations, and questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to home educate.

The course ends with a conclusion and, although it is not a necessity for home educated children, a National Curriculum is also included, should some wish to use it as a way of determining when certain skills should be taught or learned.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Home Education Certificate Course is an excellent resource for parents who have been considering home schooling their child/children, as this course will answer their questions and provide a useful guide on how to get started. It is also ideal for parents who are already educating their children from home and want to improve or consolidate their existing teaching skills and experience.

7. Body Language: Help Better Understand What A Person Is Thinking

This fascinating course will help you to better understand what a person is thinking, what they really mean, far beyond what they are actually saying.

The ultimate aim of this course is to help you master the skills necessary to become a better communicator and reader of non-verbal communication. Through eight units of lessons you will learn how to become a master at reading micro-expressions in the face, as well as various movements of the entire body, to detect deception, to know when a person is truly remembering versus imagining, and so much more. This course provides an abundance of information that will help you understand what law enforcement agents and psychologists have known for decades – that by closely observing a person and knowing what to look for you can understand the underlying emotions that a person may be trying to hide.

Who would benefit from this course?

Through out this course you will read about the biology of non-verbal body language, and learn how you can apply it in real life. Through photographs and exercises, you will learn to recognize various signs and movements, and to interpret them. This knowledge can make you more effective in almost all areas of your life, your business and personal interactions and relationships.

8. Body Language for Flirting and Dating: Master the Secrets Of Non-Verbal Communication

Not many people understand that there’s more to communication than the words they utter. In fact, there were probably many times when you went out, spoke cleverly to someone, only to see them walk away or never hear from them again. No, it wasn’t something you said or even your breath; your missed opportunities and even high expectations are caused by your lack of knowledge of body language.

Had you been keenly observing her body language, you may have noticed that her eyes were wandering to find someone else and hook up with them. On the other hand, if you had a mirror nearby, you may have noticed that the way you kept on brushing against him or touching his arms may have scared him off since you appeared to be a little too clingy for his taste.

Reflect a little on your own dating history and you’re bound to find little signs of people liking you (or not) without you knowing. Therefore, if you don’t want to miss out on your Mr. or Miss Right or end up wasting days or years on someone who doesn’t really care, you need to be well-versed in the art of body language, micro expressions and facial expressions.

Luckily, this comprehensive course will teach you everything you need to understand both of these aspects to ensure that your flirting and dating are both successful in the long run.

9. Symbology: Learn How To Decipher The Meaning Of Modern And Ancient Symbols

Learn how to decipher the meaning of modern and ancient symbols, the mechanics of good symbol design, and how to go about setting up your own symbology practice, including guidance on the client sessions you can provide and how to grow your practice.

By taking the Symbology Certificate Course you’ll learn to become more perceptive of the symbols and codes that are all around us in our day-to-day lives, including how symbology can be found in body language, and how to uncover the messages behind them. This knowledge and wisdom is passed on through exploring how and why symbols have been used throughout history, the hidden meanings behind numbers and codes, and the meanings of common shapes that make up symbols and how differing combinations affect meaning.

The course examines the meaning of animal symbols and why animals are chosen to represent countries. The meaning of various flowers and how different colour combinations symbolise different things is also explained, along with why countries choose to be represented by certain flowers.

You’ll learn how current symbols are used and become widely-recognised, and the ways in which ancient symbols are incorporated into modern life, in buildings and bank notes. You’ll also see how symbols have a lifespan, with some that are used for a very short duration, while others reappear, sometimes with a different meaning.

The shapes, styles, and colours of symbols have great meaning that can change depending on your location, beliefs, and culture. The effects of these are discussed in the course, along with the symbols associated with various celebrations, events, and festivals across the globe.

Along with imbuing you with a greater knowledge of the subject, the course also explains how you can use this information to create your own symbology practice and the types of consultations and session work you can provide to clients. The course also runs through the practical aspects of building a business, such as the legal and insurance considerations, and what you need to set up your work and consultation space.

To give a greater understanding of the work of a Symbology Practitioner and what a good consultation looks like, you will be guided, step-by-step, through a real symbology session and an average day of someone working within the role.

You’ll explore methods of providing your services, the type of work opportunities available to a modern-day symbologist, how to grow your symbology practice, and how to gain and retain clients.

Who will benefit from the course?

The Symbology Certificate Course will be of interest to anyone who would like to understand the symbols that we find all around us, and would like to be able to uncover their meanings. Those who are fascinated by cryptology and graphic designers/illustrators looking for inspiration for their work, especially in logo design, will also benefit from taking this course.

Following the successful completion of this course, you will be able to go on to become a Symbologist/Symbology Practitioner and the course itself guides you through the process of setting up your own business and the types of work that you can offer to your clients.

10. Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness: Learn Everything You Need To Know About Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder describes a difference in the way that some people's senses are processed by the brain. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the condition, including the symptoms and behaviours associated with it, diagnosis, prevalence, history, therapies and interventions, and how you can provide support.

Although awareness has recently increased, it can still be difficult to get a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes it is particularly important to know the symptoms of the condition and the behaviours that present themselves in the young children and adults who suffer from it. The sooner it can be diagnosed, the better, as modifications to the environment can be made and the right support can be put in place before self-esteem and self-confidence issues arise. The course explains the common symptoms that can occur in children and adults and the ways in which these are often misinterpreted.

As getting a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder can sometimes be difficult, this course outlines the routes you may take in gaining help and the obstacles that you may come up against. The history of the condition is also explained, along with what research is being made into the causes of the condition and the differences in how its prevalence is perceived.

Currently, it is Occupational Therapists who are the leaders in the field, as far as intervention and therapy for those afflicted with Sensory Processing Disorder are concerned. The course looks further into this role, with an overview of how they work and what sort of therapies they may be able to offer. If you don’t have access to therapy, or would like advice on how you can be more involved with your child’s condition, the course also provides useful information in how you can provide support at home. Also included, are strategies that educators can implement in the classroom to enable effective learning to those with SPD.
