SEND Resources to support at home

Children have varying needs and there is no one size approach fits all. It is quite common for children to have additional needs that span many of these areas, so select the resources that meet the needs of your child, without worrying too much about the label or category they fall under. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and these SEND strategies will be beneficial to many children, whether or not they have a diagnosis.  There is a list of information websites, tips and resources to help you support your children with their additional needs, learning and self-esteem in the following areas:

Autism Spectrum Condition

Dyslexia and Processing

English as an Additional Language (EAL)

English Key Skills

Fine and Gross Motor Skills
