    I have a high functioning Year 4 pupil in my school who is an excellent mathematician however he is really struggling with word problems as his inference skills are really delayed. He struggles with creative writing and is very literal. Can anyone recommend an intervention programme that would support his understanding of language and develop his creative skills please??
    Thanks!

    This isn't a programme as such but the resources were written for children in mainstream school with impaired language skills (and a few of them had been deemed to be 'on the spectrum'): see https://languageisheartosay.com/resources/reading-for-meaning/ . They aren't in any particular order and the bookmarks at the end are useful all the time. Hope you find something helpful.
