SEN Resources

Home Learning support for children with SEN Interventions

Dear Parents and Carers,

Whilst at home, here are some suggested additional activities to try at home with your child to support the interventions they may have been receiving at school. Lots of them are practical and fun and may be enjoyed by the whole family!  E.g. Fizzy, touch typing , Fine Motor skills etc.

There are links to a range of Speech and Language resources which can support your child’s understanding and use of spoken language and some speech sound production ideas.

We have also included some games, activities and links to help with ongoing learning of phonics.

We hope that you find them helpful.
