Congratulations to Sian Thomas
Congratulations to Sian Thomas, one of the first recipients of the SF-DDARIN Masters studentships who presented her research project " Teaching Early Reading Skills to Non Vocal Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities using an Online Reading Program" at The Seattle Club annual conference on intellectual and developmental disabilities held at Durham University on 18th and 19th December 2017. The study was a field-based research project conducted at the Calthorpe Academy. It was jointly supervised by Vaso Totsika who leads the MA in Psychology and Education at the University of Warwick and Corinna Grindle, the programme consultant at Calthorpe whose focus is on interventions to improve academic outcomes in children with intellectual disability.
Many congratulations to the team of behaviour analysts at the Calthorpe Academy in Birmingham who have been recognised in last week's OFSTED inspection. In just over a year the school has moved from "special measures" to "good" with a rating of "outstanding" for the Effectiveness of leadership and management.
