Gifted and Talented
NeuroHeadway recognises that children with high learning potential have different learning needs and we have designed specific modules with these young people and their teachers in mind.
These include the challenges that include the fact that these children often display an intellect that is more developmentally advanced than their social and emotional peers. Group mixing can be very difficult as the child thinks differently, they may find work in the classroom painstakingly slow but must keep their head down as they don’t want to seem arrogant and precocious.
We recognise that the challenge of the gifted child is that of creating learning opportunities appropriate to their ability and age while at the same time keeping them emotionally and socially within their peer structure. Once identified, the highly able child needs challenging learning experiences and this is where our Bringing Neuroscience into Education comes into its own.
This thoughtful, innovative and practical programme comprises 18 modules which equate to more than 300 potential teaching contact time hours. We supply the programme as downloadable resource packs which include lesson plans, learning assessments, monthly mentoring and solution platforms for teachers.
