By adopting the role of ‘mediator’, teachers are able to maximize the learning opportunities of each learner. Teachers provide ’scaffolded’ learning, which is a form of assistance to help the learner successfully perform tasks, that would normally not be possible when working independently.
This approach engages the learners actively at their current level of understanding until support is no longer required. Ultimately, the students become organised, confident and independent learners. Learning difficulties experienced at CREST include, but are not limited to, ADHD and ADD, dyslexia, generalised learning disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
