Students with Additional Learning Needs: A Strategy Bank for Teachers

Students with Additional Learning Needs: A Strategy Bank for Teachers

A training booklet describing many strategies for the most common additional learning needs I have come across in schools and FE colleges, including Autism, behavioural issues, hearing/visual impairments, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, handwriting difficulties and language needs. Each difficulty has at least 15-20 different strategies that I have found most useful in supporting my learners with additional needs. Please note that these are not a one size fits all approach, and what works perfectly for one student may crash and burn for another! Like with most things in teaching, it is a trial and error process. However I have found these to be the most successful strategies for me so far.
