This course is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the practice and theory of the HANDLE approach, giving you a professional certification to help people with their learning.
The fourteen month course begins with three separate five day modules of residential training and is followed by seven months of distance learning. You will be taught to use the HANDLE Screening Tool with people age five and over who want to address difficulties with academic learning, socialising, behaviour or attention. Building on your learning from HANDLE Levels 1 and 2, you will further your knowledge of the processes of learning, both in yourself and others, become able to identify underlying neurodevelopmental issues that affect how we function, and learn to share this understanding with other people. You will learn to devise and teach individualised programmes of HANDLE Activities and make recommendations designed to help people achieve their goals with more ease and enjoyment.
The HANDLE Screening is a brief practical evaluation to discover neurodevelopmental obstacles that interfere with learning for people aged 5 and upwards with mild difficulties. It is ideal for evaluating individuals or a group in a short period of time.
Completion of all course requirements enables you to be Certified as a HANDLE Screener by The HANDLE Institute® and use the HANDLE Screening Tool and Activities professionally.
