SIG 15 - Guidance Paper

Guidance for the inclusion of students with Special Educational Needs for online learning

The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has interrupted many routines and practices, including the education of young people. Many students are currently receiving some or all of their education online. Ensuring that online learning can be accessed by students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) can be a challenge. This guidance was written for teachers and educational professionals of mainly primary and secondary school students by offering insights from relevant research to ensure that students with SEN can reach their full learning potentials during online education provision.
