New Special Needs Course Targets Teachers 

Special and Inclusive Education

With one in four school-going children now having additional educational needs, an invitation has gone out to teachers, parents and those caring for children with special educational needs, in Dublin and beyond, offering them an opportunity to enrol in one of two new online postgraduate programmes about the subject commencing in September.

Hosted by Hibernia College and the Institute of Child Education and Psychology (ICEP) Europe, the Master of Arts in Inclusive and Special Education and the Postgraduate Diploma in Arts in Inclusive and Special Education programmes are designed to accommodate applicants seeking a more flexible postgraduate option due to personal circumstances, work or other commitments, with both courses almost fully online.

Subjects covered include understanding autism, general learning disabilities, dyslexia and literacy, and understanding behaviour.
