    I was wondering what schemes of work, support companies, curriculum plans are in use for pupils who are (what was PLevel) complex in their needs and progressing at a slower pace to their peer group. We have non verbal pupils with cognitive, learning needs.

    Could you give us an idea of what chronological age of students you are wanting support with and your setting please? And a rough idea of their ability (eg P1 to P3 etc... the p levels covered many years of typical development- it’s no good expecting a student working within the former P3 to understand and learn from 2 dimensional representation for example, but a student within P8 might be able to read and understand a simple phrase)
    Generally schools and teachers plan their own schemes of work and lessons based on the needs of the pupils, their ages and abilities.

    Hi, if you are stuck for ideas, try looking at the Northern Ireland schemes of work for SEN students or at the Equals schemes of work, they should at least give some inspiration. As far as assessing progress, you could try looking at Quest for your lower level learners, or explore using Bsquared or similar. We have designed our own systems to assess progress of our learners, but still use a couple of bought in assessment tools for some of our cohorts.
