An addition to this powerful series of practical books which fully support the SENCo and class teacher in implementing the SEN Code of Practice and closing the gap between children with SEN and their peers.
The Target Ladders books provide an overview of the range of difficulties experienced by children with a particular SEN, enabling the busy teacher to get a better understanding of the child's learning priorities. Photocopiable materials include checklists to help you identify children who may be in need of extra help, and templates for records of progress and monitoring sheets.
The Target Ladders range focuses on what a child can do, rather than what they cannot do, in order to identify next steps, presenting `small steps' targets for children and suggested strategies for achieving these targets. They provide the structure and flexibility to recognise that every child is different and will follow their own pathway through the targets.
Target Ladders: Sensory Processing provides targets and strategies based on seven key aspects of challenge for children with difficulties in these areas:
1. Visual (sight)
2. Auditory (hearing)
3. Tactile (touch)
4. Vestibular (movement and balance)
5. Proprioception (body awareness)
6. Taste and smell
