  • Short Course for Parents of Children with Special Needs

    Parents of children with special needs face a problematic situation in helping their children to overcome the difficulties and barriers in learning and development. The concept of Education for All (EFA) cannot be achieved without considering the needs of children with special needs. The school and home environments both need to collaborate in developing potential of children with special needs. As the parents play a vital role in educating their children with special needs, developing training or awareness programmes are needed to support them. However the available opportunities are limited in the country for proper education and training programmes for parents of children with special needs. The best method of educating parents of children with special needs is through developing short term courses rather than long term courses because the parents of children with special needs may not be able to dedicate their full time for such a long term course with their family commitments. The training from a short course obtained by the parents will provide variety of supports for learning and development of their children at home. Considering the above factors the Department of Special Needs Education has developed a "Short Course for Parents of Children with Special Needs".

  • Short Course in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

    The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a widely used instrument in assessing the environmental effects of development projects or when environmental policies are formulated to be implemented. The purpose of EIA is to ensure the protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources including human health aspects against uncontrolled development.

    EIA is a powerful tool for informed decision-making. It contributes to more environmentally sensitive decisions and the integration of environmental and social considerations in development planning. It also contributes to the transparency of the decision-making process during the development, implementation, monitoring and follow-up stages of a development project. EIA should be performed for new developments or projects and for expansions or renovations of existing establishments according to the law of Sri Lanka. A certificate of participation will be awarded on the successful completion of the short course.

  • Short Course on Inclusive Education

    Inclusive Education is about the education of all children in regular schools. The aim of inclusive education is to build an inclusive society which can nurture, develop and use the skills, talents and strengths of all its members and also increase its collective resources. Further, inclusive education emphasises the learners' rights and needs, and the importance of an education free from discrimination and segregation. Having considered the importance of inclusive classroom set up, the Ministry of Education accepted in principle, the proposal submitted by the unit of 'Education for All' to transform the regular classrooms into inclusive classrooms. Therefore, there will be a high demand for further education in the field of Inclusive Education (IE), particularly for short term courses. However, the available opportunities for learning inclusive education are very limited in the country. Therefore, the Department of Special Needs Education has decided to offer a short course on 'Inclusive Education'.
