The Promise of Neuroscience

We have so much more to understand about how the brain functions. As our knowledge increases, so our insights into the new generation of children with disabilities will grow, and we will better understand how they learn , and how we , as teachers , can better match our teaching styles. Indeed some creative and innovative pedagogy may be required!

A great leader in the area of Neuroscience is Professor Colin Blakemore. As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine , I commend to you this lecture he gave recently at the RSM.

Through the National Forum for Neuroscience in Special Education, we endeavour to stimulate a dialogue between Neuroscientists and Teachers working with children and young people with SEND.
There are two forthcoming events which may be of interest.

On November 7th , there will be a Seminar on the Neuroscience of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders .
On February 6th, 2014, the Annual Conference will focus on Mental Health, and the insights neuroscience can bring to this most co occurring of Complex Needs.

Both events will be held in London , and further details can be obtained from Natalie Eccles,
