The Star Academy offers a unique service in that programs are tailored to the needs and abilities of your child and they are implemented by skilled and highly trained Special Education Needs (SEN) instructors. 


What are some of the benefits of having a SEN instructor work with your child? :


1. Individualized Instruction:  Our SEN instructors are trained to provide individualized instruction tailored to your child’s specific needs, learning style, and abilities. They are trained and skilled to successfully implement personalized educational plans that address your child’s strengths and challenges, helping them progress in all areas of life.


2. Specialized Support: Special Education Needs (SEN) instructors have expertise in working with children who have disabilities, including autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and intellectual disabilities. They understand the unique learning profiles of children with disabilities and are trained to implement specialized teaching strategies and accommodations to support their success.


3. Adapted Curriculum: SEN instructors are trained to understand and follow an adapted curriculum to meet your child’s learning needs and goals. They may modify instructional materials and utilize assistive technology to facilitate learning and participation.


4. Behavioural Support: Many SEN instructors are trained in behavioural interventions and can help address challenging behaviours that may interfere with your child’s learning and social interactions. They can implement behaviour management strategies, teach replacement behaviours, and promote positive reinforcement to encourage desired behaviours.


5. Promotion of Independence: Special Education Needs (SEN) Instructors often focus on promoting independence and life skills development. They may teach self-care skills, such as dressing, grooming, and hygiene, as well as functional skills related to daily living, communication, and socialization.


6. Data-Driven Approach: A key aspect of ABA is its reliance on data collection and analysis to track progress and make informed decisions about interventions. Our SEN instructors are trained to take data on all skills taught so that progress can be monitored and regular adjustments can be made to the program.


7. Generalization of Skills: ABA aims to teach skills in a way that promotes generalization, meaning that the child can apply what they’ve learned across different contexts and settings. This helps ensure that the skills they acquire are meaningful and functional in their everyday lives. The SEN instructors at The Star Academy are trained to recognise and use naturally occurring opportunities to generalise skills that have been taught.


Overall, having a Special Education Needs (SEN) Instructors for your child can significantly enhance their educational experience, promote their academic and social development, and empower them to reach their full potential.
