Special Educational Needs

Description

In this special edition of Resource Review we look at six resources for special educational needs.

For primary, Dr Rona Tutt, SEN consultant for the NAHT, recommends:

  • Rapid by Heinemann - a reading programme designed with special educational needs in mind
  • Maths Games 1 by 2Simple - six maths games based on traditional arcade games
  • Behaviour TrackMaker from Surer Steps - software to make behaviour prompt cards

For secondary, Lorraine Petersen, chief executive officer for NASEN, has recommended:

  • Toe by Toe by K & H Cowling - a highly structured multi-sensory reading manual
  • What To Do When You Can't Learn The Times Tables CD-ROM by Marko Publishing - a flash based CD-ROM for learning the times tables
  • Learning Materials by Learning Materials Ltd - three books of various difficulty for KS3

ICT expert Matthew Tosh has been to see some of these resources in action, and presenter Hermione Cockburn is joined in the studio by Rona and Lorraine, SENCOs Maria Pierides and Jane Allison and freelance education consultant Adrienne Jones.
