Some comments given by those presently following the course are:
" The course I have been following online has been excellent. Being a Special Needs teacher I have learnt so much and have been able to change certain teaching methods I used so as to enable the children I teach learn better"
"There are very few programmes of this kind anywhere in the world. I have a school with children from different nationalities, countries and ages. To get more in depth knowledge about learning disability and to do justice to these children I have chosen to follow this online programme"(first overseas student)
