Hello! I have not posted on here before so... here it goes! I am a 1:1 TA with a child who has severe Global Development Delay in a mainstream school. Her main needs are social and communication. She is going into year 1 in September and I fear what is to come. So far she has been in a child initiated curriculum so she has been able to get by without her ability stopping her from doing everything the other children are but year 1 goes straight into formal schooling. I guess I am writing this to ask your views on how you think I should tackle next year! I am already trying to find out who her class is going to be next year and teacher etc. I am planning on creating her a space for herself outside and inside class. I also take her to a sensory space outside of school as there isn't that kind of space at her school. I've got her lots of resources to keep her calm in class. But on the other hand, she only knows 4 phonic sounds, and even those she doesn't read correctly. She speaks by repeating what somebody else says and has very little understanding of her surroundings. I was just wondering what other people have done? If anyone has similar struggles to me and what kind of support people are receiving! Thanks!
