Ms Foley, Ms McKenna and Mr Phillips completed a course in ‘Successful Strategies for Teaching Students with Special Needs in Every Classroom’. The course took place in Florence, Italy. On this course we learned about European strategies in supporting children with special needs in the classroom. We gained knowledge on how schools in other countries support children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism, and have taken back key insights. This course also gave us an opportunity to tour the beautiful city of Florence and all of its attractions.
