    I have a child who is p8 /1a in literacy. He is doing phonics everyday in a small group with others. He does extra phonics two three times a week one on one. The trouble is nothing is making a difference. He canot wrtie and he struggles to remember sentences. He may wrtie a sentence missing out three words and does not recgonsie that he has missed a word. The thin is I am at a loss and I have asked for help for how to help him because I just do not seem to be doing what he needs. Has anyone been in the same sitution offer me examples of things I can do with hm to help him sound out and start to maek progress?

  3. Sorry, this is annoying but just stopping by to sympathise! I've got one on P7 and one on P8 and am at a loss. Yes, I can go through the motions and do what the IEPs says and do 10 mins letter formation per day etc etc but you try it again the next day and they've forgotten!
    Do you have an inclusion manager? An ed psych to talk to?

     
  4. Presumably you mean p8/1c? He sounds like an extreme example - has he been assessed for any specific kind of need, dyslexia, etc?
    Perhaps phonics isn't the way in - how is he with key words? Could you have a few words (or sounds) on a door in the classroom that he has to read everytime he walks through it?
    How is he with reading? If he isn't reading, no wonder his writing is poor - if he can't read his writing back he wont be able to check he has got every word. With younger children we do a lot of "clap each word...write each word one at a time... count each word" etc to try and address this.
     
  5. Oooo I've got one of these.
    We have strong links with Enhanced Mainstream Schools in the area who offer us support and advice - perhaps your SenCo could see what in-authority support there is available.
    It's not a miracle cure but it is an extra set of ideas and resources from specialists.
     
  6. As I have 2 students working at P8/1c in my Y7 class, I am hoping for some help as well. They do both have Statements so we know their problems but I still have to teach them in a mainstream secondary school.
