This short course gives an introduction to the field of Complex Additional Support Needs (CASN) within the current framework of Scottish Education. This course will consider Scottish policy and how it relates to this unique group of young people and the ways in which their CASN present themselves in the classroom context. An overview of considerations (both practical and theoretical) for practitioners will give a rounded picture of what it is like to practise in this field, followed by pedagogical considerations to ensure that young people with CASN are offered equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of education and realise their capabilities. Examples of the practical considerations that will be covered include, individuality, the importance of postural care, and communication.  These will be linked to underpinning theory and data where appropriate.

The importance of professional networking will be highlighted, and suggestions will be offered to assist with the creation of a professional network via a selection of signposted opportunities to take forward. In addition, approaches to teaching, learning and relationship building such as intensive interaction, sensology and technological supports will be introduced. Participants will be guided towards further information on all of these.
