Does This Sound Familiar?
Do you have a child in your class who is behind the others and finds the work hard?
They struggle with processing and can't follow instructions well. They are in the lower ability group.
They can't seem to retain the things you've taught them. Even when you've gone over it a few times.
They lose their trail of thought easily and don't manage to get much written in their workbooks.
They have trouble understanding or identifying the main idea of what they have just read.
Reading comprehension tasks are almost impossible for this child.
They have trouble understanding new ideas or topics.
They can't pick up new skills as easily as their peers (like fractions or halving).
They are performing below age-related expectations, especially in maths, reading and literacy.
But, they don’t meet criteria for referral to SENCo or external support (like SALT or Educational Psychologist), they aren’t ‘bad enough’.
You’re concerned about them. There’s little progress in their work, despite your best efforts and you know that there must be something else you can do to help them.
Senior leadership want to see the data, the progress the proof of your efforts but it’s just not there in the child’s work.
Imagine being able to support your pupils with their learning by using simple strategies in the classroom.
You can identify that they are struggling with processing information and following instructions, now you need to boost their retention and processing skills.
You can do this with effective, easy to implement interventions to help maximise their progress and enjoy their learning.
