This is one of a suite of 12 short films made by the Centre for Education and Youth and Whole School SEND for the Department for Education. The films provide an introduction to different types of SEND for new teachers and a resource for others who want to refresh their knowledge. They give an insight into the experiences of pupils with SEND, as well as offering practical teaching tips, advice on a whole school approach and details of where to go for further information. We hope you enjoy them!
Good article in our link for today with some great advice on how to work with students with learning disabilities. Here are the headlines:
Resist the temptation to de-emphasize language in math class, especially for English-learners and those who have language-related disabilities. De-emphasis is probably a disservice.
Consider how broad student labels can conceal mathematical skill. English-learners, depending on their prior schooling, and students with disabilities, depending on their specific disability, can have widely varying math abilities and knowledge.
Focus on what students can do rather than fixating on what they cannot.
If your student cannot keep up with the online learning that is now required, remember these wise words from Australia:
Try to keep to the school’s plan. But if your child is finding it hard to cover everything, just focus on them doing at least some maths every day. It is a skill better practised frequently (10-15 minutes per day) than doing all on one day (and then forgotten by next week).
