Diploma in Special Educational Needs (SEN)

SPECIAL EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

As the name suggests, it is a specialized branch of education that deals with those students who have physical, cognitive, language, learning, sensory, and/or emotional abilities that deviate from those of the general population. Educators, trained and certified in special education, provide instructions that are particularly custom made to fit the needs of the individuals and thus making the education available to students who would have, otherwise, limited access to education.

Serving as a professional educator is arguably the most important contribution a person can offer in society today. In particular, those who choose to serve students with special needs play a crucial role in improving the outcomes of individuals with disabilities. This course is intended to be a guide in assisting you in acquiring basic understandings of special education processes and the nature and needs of students with disabilities.
