Students will explore the barriers to learning that give rise to the wide range of ASN including physical & socio-economic.  Students will explore approaches to meeting these needs within a Primary classroom including organisation and behaviour management techniques/ strategies.  The course will provide an opportunity to gain broad knowledge and understanding of antecedents or underlying causes of children’s challenging behaviour as well as opportunities to study an aspect of ASN in more depth and detail.
