Visual Bridges for Special Learners: A Complete Resource of 32 Differentiated Learning Activities for People with Moderate Learning and Communication Disabilities

Teachers and trainers running activities for people with learning and communication difficulties face the daunting task of balancing a wide range of needs, abilities and preferences, whilst simultaneously being asked to meet measured outcomes, record progress and create their own resources.

This book presents thirty-two original, engaging and highly visual learning sessions. The activities have been specifically designed to develop learning skills, self-awareness and awareness of others, explore representation, language and early literacy, and cooperation and teamwork. Each session is comprehensively described and includes worksheets, learning aims and suggestions for differentiation and extension activities for either group work or individual learning.

These activities will help to develop confidence and motivation by using highly visual resources to bridge the gap between language and cognition. They will be perfect for teachers and trainers running college classes and community education centres, day and residential care centres and training programmes. All the worksheets are included in colour on the accompanying CD.
