SEN – Resources

The school’s SENCo is responsible for ordering any additional resources which children with SEND may require. A good supply of such resources is also kept in stock. The school follows the advice of outside agencies such as Occupational Therapy to ensure that children’s needs are supported appropriately. Resources which are commonly used within school include:
For children with fine/gross motor and posture difficulties e.g. Dyspraxia:

·         Writing slopes
·         Easi-grip pencils and pencil grips
·         Different types of scissors
·         Handled rulers
·         Wobble/wedge cushions

For children with concentration/behavioural difficulties e.g. ADHD:
·         Fiddle toys
·         Concentration screens
·         Personalised timetables

For children with specific learning difficulties e.g. Dyslexia:
·         Tinted overlays
·         Reading rulers
·         Alphabet strips
·         A variety of practical maths equipment
·         Sound buttons (to record sentences)
·         ICT resources including Clicker 6

Additional equipment can be ordered as is required. For those with more complex physical difficulties for example, specialist equipment (such as hi-lo changing beds, standing frames etc.) can be sourced.
