I’m very excited to be on the acting committee of the brand new IATEFL SIG – IP&SEN (Inclusive Practices and Special Educational Needs).
As well as a chance to work with some highly qualified and very motivated people, it also gives me access to the resources and support that I need.
What I find particularly interesting is the work being done to support physical disabilities as well as learning difficulties. That’s why I was so pleased to come across Braille and lip-reading versions of the Cambridge exams here.
If you’re interested in joining then you can do so in the members’ area at IATEFL or for more information, follow us on Facebook. As I said, we’re very new, so a little patience concerning the website is in order!
Sounds good. Do you plan to have a Facebook group as well, or will you be concentrating mainly on the page?
For the moment we’ll concentrate on the page and getting the website up and running.
