Teacher Training

Through the inclusive education initiative, SEP offers children with disabilities a vital space in which to ensure optimal development by providing opportunities for child-focused learning, play, participation and peer interaction. SEP employs a multidisciplinary approach to enable a child with disability reach their fullest potential. SEP collaborates with different schools in various locations and provides training and workshops to build the capacities of the teachers.

We believe that if the teachers in regular schools are provided the right skills and interventions, it is feasible to include children with disability in the mainstream. The teachers receive practical training in improving their skills in assessments, designing individual educational plans (IEP) and adapting teaching strategies to the needs of the child. The teacher manual currently consists of 16 modules.

The SEP team follows up on the children who are in the mainstream and offers further in-service support to the teachers. SEP facilitates IEP meetings with teacher(s), parents, and other service providers to jointly discuss and agree upon objectives and teaching strategies for each individual child.

The teachers are also involved in making teaching resources and adaptations to specific needs of their students.
