Last month I was due to go on an Inclusion course which was over two weekends. I the end I couldn't do the 1st week as i had a family wedding so had to cancel the course.

We have to do an inclusion couse to access other courses its all to do with DCATCH

There are a couple of courses i would like to do and one of those is Dyspraxia as have just taken a child on with this condition.

I am not able to do the couse unless i do the inclusion course first and the ones that are being run i am not able to get to.

It has been suggested to me that i do an online course with virtual college which i am happy to do but have been looking at the courses and am not sure which one i need to do

Any help would be appreciated as would like to get it done before the end of Oct

No advice about courses with virtual college I'm afraid but just wanted to say we had a DCatch scheme here last year and I found it really good. I did several courses and feel much better prepared and confident but also much more open to the idea of looking after children with additional needs. Good luck with it, I think its well worth doing.

I would go back to your local people and check - rather that than get it wrong! :D

I went on the DCatch course at the beginning of the year - and found it brilliant. I didn't have to do any other course prior to that, I just got an invitation via email from NCMA. It didn't have a great turn out - there were only about 7 of us in total! But I'm glad I went, it was really worthwhile.

Good luck!
