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.

When sensory breaks are needed, allow the child to engage in the predetermined calming activities. This card can also be adapted for use in the home environment.

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.

Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

Pokemon style bug inspectors (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. Differentiation is essential naturally with all sessions geared towards alternative learning for this criterion of young people. This project has been particularly successful when embedded with gardening sessions, ICT sessions as well as social skills building sessions. The idea behind this session plan is to encourage young people to explore and role play (optional) in an adventure just like Ash Ketchum the main character in the popular Pokemon series. Exploring the nearby nature find bugs and catch them with the intention of observing them and making key comparisons against Pokemon. Worksheets involve making posters and creating your own Pokedex to record your findings. Additonal challenges encourage young people to go above and beyond to achieve extra rewards. The beauty is not all young people have to enjoy Pokemon to engage in this session, being interested in bugs, mini beasts and insects in general is also perfect! This session will embed being outdoors, writing opportunities, computer skills development, research skills as well as social interaction.
