The MEfA Montessori post graduate SEN CPD short course - Part 2: A Blueprint for Reporting builds on the knowledge, skills and understanding which MEfA students who have successfully graduated from Part 1: A Blueprint for Observation, have gained.
Commencing on Saturday 9th September 2017, the 2nd Cohort of Part 2 continues to focus on observing the physiological, neural and psychological development of children and young people, but the emphasis in Part 2 is learning to draw up effective developmental reports based on what we have observed.
The three taught sessions (Saturdays 9th, 16th and 23rd September) are accompanied by observation sessions and report-writing assignments. Part 2 will enable students to develop effective methods for communicating with parents and other professionals, whilst furthering their own professional development.
MEfA Students in Cohort 2 will commence on Saturday 9th September 2017: please register your interest as soon as possible.
The six week course comprises attendance at Montessori House* on three consecutive Saturdays for intensive theory tuition and pedagogical practice. This is followed by a three-week period of observations and report-writing assignments which can be flexibly scheduled.
During the course students will learn how to report professionally to a variety of audiences including:
Writing Montessori Developmental Therapy Reports for Parents and other Professionals
Reporting for Statutory Education Health and Care (EHC) Plans
Baseline Montessori/Mainstream Assessment Reports
Students are supported with Video and Narrative Case Studies and a Literature Review/Bibliography to support their learning
All materials provided are subject to copyright law.
Full course notes are supplied. One copy of each literary source is available for use during the course sessions and also during open sessions at Montessori House. A full bibliography of literature reviewed will be built during the course and students may wish to purchase their own copies of some of the books. Some students like to take notes on their own laptop they are welcome to do so. Paper and pencils will also be available.
Students are required to attend all 3 taught sessions. The observation and report-writing assignments are designed to enable each student to develop his/her professional skills, knowledge and understanding in the light of new knowledge garnered during the course; i.e. continuing professional development.
The fee structure for Cohort 2 is as follows:
Registration Fee: £30.00 (non-refundable)
