SEN teaching

General introduction

Martina Giuliano, Italian SEN teacher, is carrying out activity C3 within the Strip to Identity framework. Her activity is officially a long-term teaching mobility of 11 months, divided into smaller fractions over a 3-year period.


Martina will make a partner school overview of all techniques and methods offered and used in order to make reading and learning easier for all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils with learning difficulties or handicaps.


As an experienced SEN teacher in Italy, Martina is well placed to categorize what is on offer in the project partner schools.


Long-term mobility pupils in Norway, Ireland and Germany will be the first to share their learning experiences and learning impact with us through this website.


Additionally, this section of the website will also offer reports about the content of special courses Martina followed on subjects like autism, autism spectrum disorder, dislexia and other learning disorders.
