Special Needs Teacher Training

sen course

Children with special needs often require that extra bit of help that ordinarily cannot be received in average schools. Special teachers with exclusive skills and adequate training can undertake the coaching of such children. These teachers are always aware of the challenges special needs children face in daily life. At the APTTI , we have special teachers that are adequately trained in looking after children with special needs. Our certified teachers identify the problem early and ensure that the normal development of such children is not hampered.

Teachers with special education training can find employment in various schools, special schools and preschools. They can also join as private shadow teachers that help children learn in schools. The APTTI  harnesses the talent of these special teachers and helps them learn various methods and theories useful while training children with Autism, Mental Retardation and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD. Some children also face enormous hurdles while leading a stable life with sensory difficulties, cerebral palsy and visual & hearing impairment. Our teachers with the special needs training are able to facilitate learning among these children and more.

At the APTTI , we stress on imbibing a set of principles and rules among teachers. This helps them identify behavioural and learning problems in children. How teachers can actually deal with such issues and manage classrooms effectively is the aspect most stressed upon. Teachers who follow the special needs course; often facilitate the learning of special children in any environment.


The Special Needs Teachers Training Program helps teachers identify the special needs in children that are above the ordinary and unique. The APTTI  has three levels of program for teachers specialising in teaching these special needs children. Almost all of these SEN courses are offered at various levels.
