Welcome to Revolution - Special Needs and Neurodiversity
The Revolutions Course for Driving Instructors
This course is designed to teach driving instructors about special needs such as autism, ADHD and dyscalculia. Every instructor will come across a special needs person sooner or later in their career. This course will give you illustrations, ideas and techniques so you can teach these pupils using a fully client-centred approach.
You could see different behaviour patterns, communication difficulties, and other issues in your lessons which will seem different or unusual when compared to your everyday pupils. Even if there is no formal diagnosis of a special needs condition or a learning difficulty with a pupil, you could see differences and learning issues showing in your car.
Learn about special needs people – know when they are stressed, the different conditions they could have and how they learn through coaching.
It deals with:
And much, much more!
This course doesn’t tell you how to diagnose – but it will show you how to make the best of your lessons with special needs pupils.
As the writer of this course I have a unique position – to be a special needs person, and a driving instructor, and also to be qualified at the university level in the issues and differences that special needs people have. We special needs people need supportive driving instructors. This course is written for driving instructors like you, so you can support people like me!
