Transition meeting agenda for pupils with multiple needs

Transition meeting agenda for pupils with multiple needs

This is a list to draw upon when preparing for a transition meeting of a child or young person with multiple needs and of any age. It is not intended that you discuss everything on the list but highlight the relevant statements as part of your meeting preparation and perhaps number the statements in an order you think most appropriate.

PSHE: Reach the Star game to learn about EMOTIONS

PSHE: Reach the Star game to learn about EMOTIONS

The object of this game is to learn some of the synonyms of the word ‘sad’. Children play in pairs or you play with a child. They pick a card and decide whether it is a ‘sad’ word or some other emotion. If it is a sad word they can move one space up towards the star. If it is another emotion they stay where they are. Who can be the first to reach the star?

Play doh therapy -  complete programme

Play doh therapy - complete programme

This is a complete programme of activities for children from yr 1 to yr 7. The activities cover a range of skills including speech and language, communication, social, fine motor and more. The programme is split into 5 stages and can be delivered 1:1 or in small groups. The programme is not linear and different stages can be used at different times depending on the age and the ability of the children it is being used with. Staff using the programme can set their own time frame for the length of each session and the duration of the programme. A full description of each activity is included and extension activities are also included as is an assessment sheet. Time will, initially, be needed to set up your play doh therapy pack ( printing and laminating ) but once a pack is created it can be used over and over again. A considerable amount of time has gone into this resource and I would be grateful if my work is acknowledged when used.

Play and Grow Ltd SEMH Questionnaire

Play and Grow Ltd SEMH Questionnaire

Play and Grow Ltd are an education services company that partners with schools, alternative provisions and pupil referral units to support SEND and CPD. This SEMH Questionnaire looks at five strands: Identity, Friendships, Communication, Body Language and Leadership. This questionnaire enables professionals to have an insight in to the emotional wellbeing of pupils. Additionally, it’s a great tool for monitoring and tracking social and emotional progress and development. It is best used pre-intervention and then post-intervention in order to identify if any progress has been made. Lastly from the data collected, a graph of results can be generated, which can be referred to during inspections, SEND Audits, when setting Annual Review Targets or when planning lessons for identified pupils. www.playandgrowltd.simplesite.com

My Street - Story for students with learning difficulties.  An all inclusive story.

My Street - Story for students with learning difficulties. An all inclusive story.

I have outlined a couple of key features in the book. • I have given each character a name that starts with a different letter – student who sign can learn the signs for each character and recognise the letter for each. • I have numbered the houses from 1 to 10 giving students the opportunity to count, count out objects (maybe houses). • I have given each house a different colour so that students could be asked questions about colour of house. • I have given each character different colour clothes so that students can be asked about colour of clothes. • I have made the drawings simple and tried to make each character different – colour/style of hair etc so that students can comment on who that character is. • Each page contains a line/verse that has the same syllables/structure. I find students with special needs like the rhythm and structure of a book and can become engaged by this. I have found ‘Call and Response’ method of reading for students particularly engaging for vocal and non-vocal students. Read the line, then students (with staff) to read the same line. Sign each line which is good for non-vocal and vocal students also as they learn signs with repetition of each verse. • The book contains answer cards which I would like teachers/parents/guardians to cut out laminate and stick to answer laminate boards. Again very simple but give students the ability to comment on the following questions.  What is the colour of Luke’s house?  What colour is Hope’s clothes?  What number house does Max live in?  What does Tal like doing?  Who lives in house number 3?  Who likes playing football?  Use sentence strips to create short sentences ‘Tal lives in number 2’. ‘Tal likes to drum’. Students who are able to write can copy these sentences. • The concept of ‘he’ and ‘she’ can be difficult for some students and this can be discussed also ‘What does he like to do?’ etc. • Activities are so important for students with special needs and these characters are all doing activities that can be accessed by students during their lessons and using their experiences to engage and comment – experience activity, take photos include in literacy lessons etc.

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.

Royal Wedding Decorations (SEN Maths: Measure)

Royal Wedding Decorations (SEN Maths: Measure)

Instructions for making Harry and Meghan Wedding Party Decorations. I used with 14-16 year old SEN EL1 and EL2 students so that they were able to generalise their measuring length skills. LA activity focuses on vocabulary to do with length, width and height (symbol supported). MA is the same with some measuring in metres and centimetres (symbol supported). HA has more of a focus on measuring and includes standard and non-standard units. You will need to make the different sized cirlcles (I used red, white and blue of course) and print off some pictures of Meghan and Harry.

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.
