Using Video Reflection training to support staff to develop communication strategies for students with learning disabilities.
The VR approach in this research is based on Parent (or Practitioner) Child Interaction (PCI) (Cummins et al 2013).This project is based on preliminary findings from pilot studies which showed VR to be a useful tool for training client-centred communication skills in staff supporting young ALD (‘learners’) in an education setting (Meadows 2016; Rayment 2016; Taylor 2016). The pilot study findings also indicated some modifications to the training programme which will be explored in this follow-up study, notably, changing the procedure for selecting communication strategies for trainees to use with learners during the VR training sessions. In order to ensure that this training becomes feasible in the workplace in terms of time and effort, the current study aims to investigate whether a shortened form of the training programme is effective.To address this question, two groups, each of 10 staff with no/some previous exposure to VR training will be trained as follows: 10 will receive the shortened programme (1 VR session) and 10 will have the original pilot programme (2 VR sessions).The project is based at the Aurora Centre, South Thames College, Merton.
