What do you do when a few children in a particular cohort are not making any progress in their reading ability? The scheme we follow is quite new, implementation support has been poor and direction is minimal, although the scheme is very structured (SfA). One child in particular has low GCA but no support in mainstream. What tools can I use to do a diagnostic assessment of what this child is missing / what this child needs to make progress? How can I insert interventions for this child and others like them when the timetable is so tightly compacted with maths, foundation subjects, other interventions such as ELSA, CatchUp, Nippers, etc etc etc...? Please, if you have any advice, experience or a way out of this, let me know. I really would appreciate it. Many thanks for taking the time to read about my dilemma.
