SchoolScreener webinar for educators

News Education

Dr Sebastian Hendricks and professor David Thomson

SchoolScreener for Schools will host a webinar on December 7 to help educators identify and support one in five students with mild to moderate hearing and sight loss.

Pete Henshaw, editor of SecEd and Headteacher Update, will host the webinar alongside panellists professor David Thomson, director of product development and clinical lead at Thomson Screening, and Dr Sebastian Hendricks, consultant in paediatric audiovestibular medicine at University College of London Hospitals (UCLH).

The panel will discuss the impact of the pandemic on pupils’ speech and language development and myopia and the implications for their educational and social development.

They will also examine how undetected vision or hearing deficits can present as challenging behaviour at school and how children’s sight and hearing changes as they develop.

The free event takes place on Tuesday, December 7 from 4:30pm to 5:30pm, via the Mark Allen Group (MAG – TES SEND show and Publishers of Headteacher Update and SecEd).
