The Sessions

The day will be made up of three separate sessions.

Session 1
Teach Us Too will start the day by sharing stories that outline why it's important not to make assumptions about what children with a diagnosis can achieve.

Session 2
After the morning break, Dr Sarah Moseley’s session will provide delegates with insights on how to promote inclusive approaches to reading. The emphasis will be on the role we play as staff and how we need to reframe our thinking to ensure high-quality adaptive teaching based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Session 3
In the afternoon session, Pie Corbett and TfW's SEND specialist Jane Ralphs will share some of the initial findings from her projects working with special schools, demonstrating how these schools have effectively adapted TfW for their children.
