About FANA’s PDP

This Professional Development Programme (PDP) is being offered in response to repeated request by those who wish to learn more about learning and communication disabilities. The programme is therefore designed to provide a working understanding of major (a) learning disabilities such as reading or writing disorders or difficulties with basic maths; and (b) communication disorders such as language delay or disorders, speech or fluency disorders etc. Our programme is purposefully created for parents, teachers, educational professionals, individuals working with children with disabilities as well as anyone interested in the topic. Our instruction is provided by highly-qualified and very experienced educators in an interactive physical as well as online environment.

What is the PDP about?

Our PDP contains 12 modules (courses), organized in three parts: The first part consists of courses covering a wide array of topics ranging from language and literacy development to basics of developmental psychology to early childhood care and education. In part two, major learning and communication disabilities will be dealt with. Here, the focus is on (a) the nature, causes, symptoms, prevalence and effects of the disabilities; and (a) methods of identifying particular difficulties of a child and supporting him/her. In the third part, the courses (a) equip trainees with the inter-professional working knowledge required to work with children with these disabilities, as well as (b) offer the students the opportunity to “learn by doing it” by transferring what they have learnt to actual work.
