Strategies in working with children with diverse needs - Early Years

Course Duration:  9 hours - 3 hours

The Learning Support Educator is responsible for preparing educational material that plays an active role in the instructional and educational process taking place in class.

The Maltese education system is divided into three modules, namely: Early years (Kinder to Year 2), Primary Years (Year 3 to 6) and Secondary Years (Year 7 to 11). These modules were created to explore transversal strategies. 

The LSE needs to be confident in the methodologies used at all levels. This knowledge is necessary since a Year 11 student's academic level could be comparable to that of Year 3 pupil due to disability.

Therefore, this module teaches the necessary skills to create strategies and resources that complement the student’s needs and capabilities.
