    Hi all,

    I am a Reception teacher in a mainstream school that is in partnership with a special school. In my class this year there is a child with a tracheostomy. In most areas of the curriculum she is progressing well and is cognitively just below her peers. I was working her SEN LSAs when in school but always found reading a hard area to teach/assess in. Mum is asking for some help with this and it is looking likely that I will be her teacher again in Year 1 so would love some advice, or if anyone know of any reading I can do to support her and mum, and in the classroom eventually, with her reading and assessing her reading. Mum os concerned that it will have a detrimental effect on her communication skills.
