    Currently I work in a mainstream school and there is a big emphasis on questioning pupils thinking with the use of open questions. However, I am wondering how SEN teachers support pupils with SEN in primary school, especially KS1 with developing these skills as I find my p level (p7-8) students struggle with this.

    I mainly give the pupils visual choices to prompt their answers when given a question, or use emotion cards e.g. to discuss how the characters feel in the story. It can still be difficult as while they can talk, their language is still developing. I also find open questioning for pupils with SEN tends to be quite difficult in maths and often simplify by using closed questions.

    What strategies do teachers use for questioning or other assessment for learning opportunities with their pupils with SEN?

    Any help would be much appreciated!
