Trish and Fay Purdie-Nicholls from Coromandel Area School discuss the underpinning principles for teaching and leadership, and the core practices they have developed to enable neurodiverse learners to demonstrate their intellect and capability.
They focus in particular on the use of digital tools to support learner independence and on the professional development approach they adopted to support teachers and teacher aides.
The key ideas discussed in this webinar are also shared in a short insight article.
