SEN acronyms in secondary education

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by squixel, Apr 22, 2012.

  1. Hi
    I am a currently at University studying to teach at
    Secondary level and for my dissertation I am looking at acronyms used in
    education in regards to SEN and how easily recognisible they are.
    have put together a quick survey to see what acronyms are easy to
    recognise in terms of what the acronym actualy means. I would be
    extremely grateful if you took the time to go through the survey, it
    will take less than 5 minutes.

    would also like to see what peoples opinion is of acronyms used in
    education. personally feel that class lists seem to be far too
    cluttered with acronyms that can be, especially for a new teacher, hard
    to figure out and remember. I understand that using acronyms makes it
    quicker to put together a register and quickly identify anything that
    needs to be targetted whilst plannig a lesson, however, I think a stand
    alone document that describes slightly more into depth each childs
    "problem" more.
    Too often I have gone to find out more on a childs
    SEN and find out there is not too much on it due to the fact that they
    are not statemented.
    What do you think?
    Please Note: I have put this post in the Secondary and Special Education sections so there is no need to answer the survey twice

    Done the survey :)

    I thought there would be more acronyms though. If they are the only ones you see on your class lists then feel lucky. Most that I've had have more acronyms than actual words.
