Marize received great feedback from SENDCOs who watched her presentations at the Virtual SEND Conferences
This session was originally presented live at one of our online Virtual SEND Conferences.
“It was great. It was really important for me as I am working for the 3rd year with PMLD and every day is a blessing for me to have this opportunity. What Marize Lawson said was really clear and I am already thinking of ways to change how I plan these activities for my students as well as how to have staff more on board with how, what and why students are learning what they are learning.”
“Lots of practical ideas to take back to the classroom.”
