Module content

The purpose of the module is to equip the student with the knowledge and skills needed to identify learners with learning difficulties in the classroom, assess these learners and plan intervention strategies to support them. We focus on the early identification of learning difficulties, diagnostic assessment to determine the underlying causes thereof, as well as intervention strategies in order to successfully address learning barriers in the Intermediate Phase. The student will learn how to adapt the curriculum for learners experiencing learning difficulties and how to support these learners in building a positive self-esteem by providing opportunities for learning success and in doing so enabling the learners to believe in their own abilities.
