The Five Big Essential Skills Maps for Reading & Helpful Resources Thousands of studies of the teaching of reading, and how children learn to read, have been published in scientific and academic journals. All studies placed an emphasis on teaching five essential skills for reading and that a high-quality literacy program must include all five components. • Phonemic Awareness • Phonics • Vocabulary • Fluency • Comprehension The recommendations were that students be explicitly and systematically taught. The five maps, one for each of the five skills, indicate what should be included in each of the five areas and are accompanied by explanations of some targeted activities such as Repeated Reading, Choral Reading and Readers Theatre. There are also suggestions for evidence-based programs and a number of websites containing information and numerous resources to help you plan and deliver your lessons.

Preschool Questionnaire highlighting LD

(0)
Pre-school Questionnaire for all children which will alert you to possible learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia or social/behavioural problems; There is so much evidence that schools can collect from parents before a child starts school to alert you for possible learning difficulties/disabilities. In fact, if you ask the correct questions you can be ready to intervene to prevent academic failure or social/behavioural difficulties before they occur. The questionnaire is intended for schools to use with parents of all new children. It will, however, help teachers highlight those children who may require support and intervention. It might also be used with other data to help schools group children and place in classes. It can be changed to have the school’s name and Logo, additional questions can be added or others extracted.

School Improvement Audit Questionnaires for Primary Schools – Diversity and Inclusion: There are 4 questionnaires within this set intended for schools to use with their school community to audit what they are doing well & what needs developing in terms of inclusion & meeting the needs of students with learning difficulties. The questionnaires are intended for Senior managers, Teachers, Parents and students but schools can decide to use them for in-school staff only. The responses to the questionnaires will help schools determine what they doing well, what needs to be developed and also to prioritise developments. They are concerned with inclusion with a particular emphasis on literacy although special reference to literacy could be deleted if preferred. The questionnaires for parents and students could be used with two school years only e.g. years 2 and 5.
