Hi and Happy New Year to everyone. It's been a while since I posted anything in the Forum; I've always been pleased to help others, but now I find myself in need of advice and support. I've been asked to join a team of professionals supporting a 9 year old girl with a TBI, at home. She suffered her brain injury three years ago, was placed inappropriately in a Special School until quite recently and has undergone an in depth cognitive assessment with an EP. This has established that the child is more able than was suspected, but she is non-verbal and communicates using eye-gaze and an E-Trans. She has significant physical mobility issues too. I haven't seen the EP's report yet, but I understand that there are further assessments to be carried out before the final report is available. I'm meeting the child for the first time tomorrow, at her home, where I will be delivering a home education package for three days a week in the very near future - once I know what she needs. It's going to be a steep learning curve for me and I'm okay with that. I have 30 years teaching experience, including specialist tuition for children with specific learning difficulties, but I do feel ill-prepared for something like this. Having met the Case Worker, the girl's mum and one of the Support Teachers/Therapists, they are keen for me to be involved, so I am going to give it my best shot. I'm meeting the EP on Friday and hope to start putting together the outline of a daily 2 hour programme of basic skills for three days a week during term-time, with the intention that the team will continue to deliver the programme when I am not there. I'd be grateful for any advice and help from the TES Community. I anticipate asking for quite a lot of advice and help to begin with. I've picked up a lot of information online and perhaps things will fall into place more easily than I anticipate, but until I assess how we will communicate with each other meaningfully, I anticipate there will be a lot of trial and error until I learn to interpret her responses. Thanks in advance.
