Hello, I would be very grateful if anyone has some tips they could share, please. I am working with a pupil in Year 10 who has autism. He is learning methods and operations relatively well, but he finds it very hard to know which operation to apply when faced with solving word problems. His parents and I agree that this is probably because he finds it hard to imagine scenarios and use this as a basis to determine the operation required. We have done a good deal of practical work using a variety of resources and this certainly helps, but without these, he struggles. Now he is working towards his GCSE, he cannot ultimately be reliant upon visual aids to help him and that's where I'm coming unstuck. Does anyone have any ideas please? Thank you so much.
