Neurodiversity Strengths Checklist - useful for SEND and INCLUSION departments

Neurodiversity Strengths Checklist - useful for SEND and INCLUSION departments

Psychometric and neurocognitive assessments are important when assessing need. But what about individual strengths? My background is in neuroscience although I also work as an Assistant SENCo within my local school. I wanted to design a useful tool so assessing neurocognitive strengths would be easy for individuals without a neuroscience background. Once these are found then designing bespoke intervention becomes an easier task. While some neurodiversities can make certain tasks more difficult, they can equally be of benefit in other areas. Neurodiverse minds have a great many strengths and schools need various tools to help them recognise what they are for each individual. The NSC is a non-diagnostic tool that can help professionals working in schools identify where the neurodiverse strengths are for each individual student. Neurodiversity assumes everyone everywhere has neurodiverse strengths. The ethos behind the NSC is that it is down to each professional within every school to do everything reasonably possible to search for these strengths and attempt to develop them in a proactive and positive way in order to develop the students learning abilities. I hope people find it useful.

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -Pastel Visual Schedule, pictured above (roughly 6 x 10 inches), -Over 250 common activities/tasks/objects found in the home and school setting (in PDF format and 1.5 x 1.5 inches with 20 pictures to a page) *Product is 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed. ►How to Use◄ Struggling to get your child to comply to even the simplest requests, such as getting dressed in the morning or eating all of their dinner in the evening? Then this product is for you! Children of all ages who have difficulty completing tasks will benefit from this daily routine visual schedule. This visual prompt aids in keeping your child or student on task and behaving appropriately by providing them with simple, concrete reminders of the next task they will be required to complete. It is helpful for children who struggle with attention and hyperactivity, as well as children on the autism spectrum who struggle with rigidity and changes to their routine. Use the pictures provided in this download to map out your child’s schedule by cutting the individual pictures out, placing velcro on the back of each of them, and placing the pictures on the board, based on your child’s routine. Once a task is completed, allow your child to remove the picture from the board. Do this until each task has been completed. This visual schedule can be adapted for use in the home and school environment.

Color Me Compliant! Token System

Color Me Compliant! Token System

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -All four color variations displayed in the thumbnail, -1.5 x 1.5 inch watercolor tokens in various colors, -And 60 pictures of reinforcing toys/activities to work for (in PDF format with 20 pictures to a page) *Product is roughly 6.9 x 3.5 inches and 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed. ►How to Use◄ Do you find yourself repeating the same request three or four times before your child or student complies? Fret no more! Children perform better on tasks whenever an incentive is provided, which is where this product comes in! The gist is this: tokens can be traded for access to a variety of rewards (including activities or inexpensive items) in return for good behavior. Allow your child or student to assist in selecting a reward. This allows for optimal reinforcement, and will also facilitate the development of self-monitoring behaviors. Reward good behaviors more frequently when first implementing this product into your daily routine. As your child becomes familiar with the process of the token system, you can stretch the amount of time between delivery of tokens for good behaviors. This product can be adapted to suit any need. For example, a child who struggles to complete their nightly routine can use the token system while performing each step of this routine (one token for taking a bath, one for putting on their pajamas, and one for brushing their teeth). It can also be used for academic routines, such as homework completion (for example, the child receives one token per 5 math problems completed, or one token per correct spelling word). For children with special needs, such as Autism, this token system can be used to facilitate communication or peer interaction (for example, earning a token when making appropriate eye contact or when using appropriate verbal and non-verbal communication). For children with ADHD or inattentive behaviors, tokens can be provided when they remain seating or focused during instructional time for a pre-decided amount of time. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

Behavior Calendar

Behavior Calendar

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive a behavior calendar (in PDF format), which can be reproduced for all of the students in your class. Only one calendar is needed for the entire school year. ►How to Use◄ A behavior calendar is a behavior tracking tool that offers an alternative to the time-intensive behavior charts that are commonly utilized in classrooms today. A few factors that make this behavior calendar so practical include: -This calendar provides a list of inappropriate behaviors and common locations, as well as a key for each of these items, allowing you to quickly and efficiently track the behaviors of each of your students. -Behavior charts that utilize a color system to indicate inappropriate behaviors (for example, a green color indicates “great” behavior, yellow indicates “needs improvement,” and red indicates “bad” behavior) often do not provide enough details regarding behaviors that need improvement. Younger children may forget or be unwilling to tell their parents exactly what negative behaviors they engaged in when only a color or vague description is provided. This behavior calendar provides specific feedback to parents and children, which allows more efficient communication between parents and teachers. Additionally, it provides more detailed RTI data for teachers regarding students who engage in frequent inappropriate behaviors and the locations that those behaviors commonly occur. -If a clip-down or color system is utilized to track behaviors, this calendar can be adapted to include this data. Teachers can allow students to fill in their color at the end of the day, in addition to the details provided by the calendar key. -Because this calendar is labeled by weeks instead of months, teachers only need to print one sheet and make enough copies for each of their students to last the entire school year. This eliminates the hassle of printing out a different calendar each month. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth. This purchase is strictly for non-commercial use only. You may print and use in your home, business, or public place but may not resell, reproduce, distribute by electronic means or profit in any way from the design.

Feeling Charts

Feeling Charts

These feeling charts have been created to be an interactive, frequently-used, classroom resource. The more students utilize the charts, the more the classroom as a whole and the student as an individual, will benefit. Students better understand their own emotions when they learn to identify what they are feeling; and proceed to learn how to cope with those emotions. This, in return, allows for a positive classroom environment with less confusion and more understanding between students and teachers. -There are 24 feelings included: aggressive, angry, annoyed, bored, calm, cold, confident, confused, disappointed, embarrassed, excited, friendly, frustrated, funny, grumpy, happy, hot, hungry, hurt, lazy, motivated, nervous, overwhelmed, proud, quiet, sad, scared, shy, sick, silly, surprised, tired -One large feelings chart. Three miniature feelings charts. -All emoji faces are labeled with their emotion.

SEND IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

SEND IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

The file included is an updated/new IEP template which is renamed ‘Pupil Learning Passport’. It is used successfully in conjunction with face-to-face parental meetings once per term. We allocated 20-25 minutes each for the Autumn term parental meetings and 10-15 minutes each for the Spring and Summer term meetings, although longer may be needed depending on the nature of the outcomes, progress made as well as the individual circumstances surrounding the pupil . Pupil Learning Passports (PLPs) can be used for SEND, LAC and disadvantaged pupils. What does it do? Outlines personal details and SEND category/categories Links to SEND ranges Outlines the pupil’s strengths, achievements and interests ( pupil discussions are held once a year prior to the first parental meeting). Outlines external agencies involved Outlines background information (status, medical and external agencies) Incorporates pupil voice - ‘barriers to learning’ and ‘I learn best when’ States outcomes and learning targets (Autumn, Spring and Summer) Outlines provision (intervention, resources, strategies and what I can do at home to help Tracks attainment and progress data Reviews outcomes Incorporates parent views Includes details of transition Why is it more effective? One document that is updated each term for one year and the follows the pupil into future year groups One document that tracks pupil progress for their whole school career from Reception to Y6, or whenever they join your school In-line with the SEND Code of Practice 2015, incorporating parent and pupil voice and views Sections are written in conjunction with the pupil It combines IEPs and Pupil Passports removing the need for two separate documents Links directly to SEND Provision Map Saves teachers time having ‘tick box’ options in various sections All relevant information needed for referrals is in one place All relevant information in one place to ensure all staff involved with the child is aware of provision, needs, resources and strategies Acts as a transition document (class to class/teacher to teacher, across Key stages and to new schools) Overall, it replaces a lot of singular documents and creates one meaningful and multi-purpose document for SEND pupils.
