Training & Support
At Situla we empower educators, supporting staff and parents of learners with individual needs by giving them the tools, not only to understand the learners better, but also implement strategies to facilitate continuous development.
Situla offers a unique, child-specific, one-on-one, integrated programme for teachers, supporting staff and parents of learners with individual needs. We can help with the identification of support systems at school and home – offering assistance, support and training to parents, caregivers, teachers and schools working with these learners.
Our comprehensive training programme is developed to assist teachers, supporting staff and parents of learners who are diagnosed with:
- Pervasive Developmental Delay-Not Otherwise Specified (P.D.D. / N.O.S)
- Asperger and other Syndromes
- Behavioral and Emotional Problems
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and ADHD
- Children with Dyspraxia
- Children who have Autism and co-morbid problems
- Specific learning problems
- Mainstream children who need learning support
Recent studies and research in the field of best practise for learners with individual learning needs highlight the benefits of not relaying on a one size fits all approach or taking learners out of their environment for separate intervention, but rather creating more supportive and inclusive environments and empowering learners to get the most out of their natural setting. Situla focuses on a holistic approach to teaching and therapeutic intervention – creating environments where learners with individual learning needs are not only accommodated, but can thrive. At Situla we empower educators, supporting staff and parents by giving them the tools, not only to understand learners better, but also implement strategies to facilitate continuous development.
Situla specializes in training tutors and facilitators to assist and support learners in situations that might be difficult for learners to negotiate in a class or group setting. This helps the learner to stay focused on the task at hand and support them to get the very most out of their learning environment. The facilitator/tutor also assist the class teacher who may find it challenging to include and accommodate a learner who learns and behaves differently in comparison to other mainstream learners.
