For Teachers

Points to Consider - Pt 1

This clip is the first of two clips in which Linda Carter, a school counsellor, talks about points to consider when using Speaking from Experience resources. She talks about the importance of planning ahead before using the resources with students, allowing sufficient time for questions and answers afterwards, and about obtaining consent before associating a particular student with a medical condition during teacher professional development. Further teacher support is available by selecting the 'Notes' tab.
