    Hiya, I have just taken on the role of SENCO, and TBH, not a lot of intervention goes on and I am aiming to introduce some more but obviously, can't do everything! If you could recommend one intervention, what would it be?

    Thanks

  3. I would recommend the use of a good, structured, systematic synthetic phonics programme, taught by well trained staff, for all children with reading and spelling difficulties. The SP teaching not to be mixed with any other strategies at all and no time wasted on learning to read and spell HFWs to the exclusion of all else[​IMG]
    Get your 'strugglers' reading well and your SEN register (or whatever you use) will melt away like magic and leave you free to concentrate resources on the children who really need them.
    (Unless, that is, you are in a 'Special' school... Which is a completely different kettle of fish)
