Special Educational Needs (SEN) - Advanced
Advanced Special Educational Needs (SEN) Course
This Special Educational Needs Advanced course is a progression from our Special Educational Needs course. The advanced course delves deeper into the theoretical foundation and prepares students even further to effectively work with children with special educational needs.
