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.

Individual Lesson Objective booklet

Individual Lesson Objective booklet

This is a professional, well put together booklet for learners to fill out during a lesson. Each session learners are to give themselves an objective and state what they plan to achieve. The booklet has an example, some ideas of what they could write and words they could use. This document gives learners a target as well as stretch and challenge tasks. This booklet will also show progression over 1 to 36 weeks. It is to the point and easy to fill in. I use this for a particular group of Carpentry learners that do not have a training booklet or any other proof of progression. Ideal for OFSTED and observations.

Smartphone Behavior Chart BUNDLE (Pastel and Bold Colors)

Smartphone Behavior Chart BUNDLE (Pastel and Bold Colors)

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -Both color variations (Pastel and Bold) of the above Smartphone printables, which are roughly 8 x 8 inches and 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed. **$2.00 cheaper than buying each product separately! ►How to Use◄ Finally, a redesign (and more personalized version) of the most popular classwide behavior intervention used by teachers today! The gist is this: Start the day with your child or student’s token/clothespin/clip on the green area of the chart. Throughout the day, when your child or student makes a good decision in the home or classroom, instruct them to move their token/clip up the chart. When bad decisions are made, they move their token/clip down the chart. This visual allows the child to self-monitor his or her own behaviors. It is a particularly effective intervention when reinforced with rewards. For example, if you end the day in the purple or green area of the chart, you get a sticker or piece of candy. This intervention can be used throughout the whole day, but it is also effective for shorter durations or transitions. A common example for parents: if your child has difficulty following their bedtime routine, you can implement the chart at the start of the evening and offer a reinforcement right before bed if they end the night on the green or purple area of the chart. A common example for teachers: if your students struggle with a less preferred activity, such as large group instructional time, you can implement the behavior chart at the beginning of instructional time and rewards all students who end instructional time with their tokens in the green or purple areas of their charts. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

My Behavior is Super! Token System

My Behavior is Super! Token System

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -Both color variations displayed in the thumbnail, -1.5 by 1.5 inch “Wow!” tokens in various colors, -And 60 pictures of reinforcing toys/activities to work for (in PDF format with 20 pictures to a page) *Superhero prints are roughly 6 x 6 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.

National Curriculum linked Grapheme-Phoneme Reading Test

National Curriculum linked Grapheme-Phoneme Reading Test

This resource contains a list of words, which are related to the National Curriculum Appendix 1, for Key Stage 1 and 2. The list is useful for assessing the ability of children to read words containing the Grapheme-Phoneme correspondences outlined in the National Curriculum. The test can be used to identify sounds which the child does not yet know, which they can be taught. For this reason, it is especially useful w here a child is not making progress in their ability to read accurately. Once a sound, or group of sounds, has been identified as being unrecognised by the child, they can be the focus of any teaching. This test can form the first step in an Assessment, Plan, Do and Review cycle. The test was used as part of the programme outlined in “Improving Reading Accuracy, and Comprehension, Programme Outline”

Season TEACCH Bundle - Independent Autism and SEND Activities

Season TEACCH Bundle - Independent Autism and SEND Activities

Save 25% with this Seasonal Bundle. Activities and tasks for your pupils with Autism! Includes early reading, writing and maths activities to help achieve those early targets and build on working independently! These are the individual resources included: Spring TEACCH Tasks £3 Summer TEACCH Tasks £3 Autumn TEACCH Tasks £3 Winter TEACCH Tasks £3 When using TEACCH tasks the task that is to be completed should be placed on the left hand side of the desk/workstation. The pupil then completes this task and places it on the right when completed. Having a clear visual for the pupil to identify where the finished tasks go is preferable. This clear structure allows the pupils to focus on the task they are completing and not be distracted by the work process. It is important to remember that when completing these tasks it is also about creating and building independence as well as success at the task, this is why the consistent work approach (working from left to right is so important) When using these tasks I would recommend using them for at least 4-6 weeks. For some children it may take up to a term for them to master the skill and be able to complete this independently.

The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. This bundle contains 6 project plans and is aimed at giving young people the opportunity of learning about Ancient Egypt in a less academic way through more hands on activities using arts and crafts, social play, woodwork, Lego and more. This range of sessions was delivered over a 6 week half term, each session being focused on per week.
