Course Overview

The term "special needs" encompasses a wide spectrum, referring to individuals who require assistance and support for various disabilities like physical, developmental, and learning disabilities. Examples include dyslexia, autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These children, distinct in their requirements, often demand additional support, which could involve specialised teaching methods.

Our Online Diploma in Early Childhood Education teaches practical skills in core topics alongside a deeper exploration of the subject matter using an innovative online teaching methodology that helps learners develop a strong foundation in early childhood education.

Comprising 19 modules taught over 18 months, the programme emphasises targeted training in tending to and educating young children with special needs. This encompasses performing teaching routines, creating educational materials, and aiding in specialised care activities, while also learning to support classroom curriculum delivery, encompassing literacy, numeracy, language, and ITC components.

The course materials are delivered through online lectures and tuition that adhere to a structured learning framework with well-defined objectives. Students can monitor their advancement and self-assess their study strategies through an online platform.
