Students enrolling in courses which do not follow the recommended enrolment pattern cannot be assured of a developmental learning experience or program completion within their preferred timeframe.
This course will explore a range of learner developmental differences (atypical development) that may or may not be associated with a diagnosed disability but do impact upon the secondary school learner's access to and participation in, the curriculum. Areas including but not limited to attention, motor skills, communication, sensory processing, and executive functioning, will be defined and their impact on learning illustrated through examples found within a secondary school environment. Evidence-based teaching strategies specific to a secondary school environment and relevant to these developmental differences will be explored as well as data collection methods to identify these diverse needs, and inform appropriate educational practices. Additionally, the role of motivation and self-regulation in learning will be considered.
