Hi, My new class has a child who is years behind in reading and writing, and can't stay on task independently - to be honest, the child really can't do anything at all unless they have an adult working with them 1:1 all the time.... However, for various reasons, they don't have any specific 1:1 support assigned to them at all. I will have a TA for the mornings only - and the TA is supposed to support all the class, not one particular child as the class as a whole have a lot of progress to make up, and there are other children (admittedly nowhere near so far behind) who need support too. As to what I teach the child, I feel completely at a loss to know where to start. I can see that 'differentiation' of the lessons I teach isn't going to be enough - this child needs completely different lessons planned and prepared - and aside from the workload that will create, I'm really not experienced enough with this level to know what's best. So, do I assign my TA to work with the child every morning? She knows more than me about the sort of work the child will need to do. How on earth can I support this child in the afternoons lessons? Do I devise a 'buddy' rota for help with reading and scribing for them? Suggestions welcome.
