We want to help SEN teachers network; to share ideas, to talk about current issues in education and classrooms, to work collaboratively on interesting projects and to share guidance and offer support to each other. The SEN panel is led by Bev Evans
I am a primary EBD teacher, working in a special school, who enjoys using ICT to support and inspire learning (especially iPod touch devices). I am always looking for new ways to improve my teaching and I am an Apple Distinguished Educator.
After playing trumpet professionally for 6 years, I began teaching, then completed a MA in SEN, while researching the use of Multisensory Multimedia Environments with pupils with MLD/SLD and PMLD. After a period of teaching primary SEN, I now teach pupils with Dyslexia/SpLD whilst continuing my research.
I am an independent special needs ICT and assistive technology consultant involved in the education of children with severe and complex needs. I was formerly Consultancy and Training Manager at Inclusive Technology, leading a team of teachers and therapists providing services to schools in the use of assistive technology.
I am an Advisory Teacher for North Tyneside LA specialising in ICT and SEN. I have taught, and had senior management responsibility in mainstream secondary and special schools. My current post allows me to work both within schools and in business partnerships with companies who develop inclusive products and services.
