Session Synopsis

We know that maths is a challenge for students with SEN and inclusion is often provided by support and assistance. 

In this session, Karen will explore the complexities of this support and the importance of scaffolding Maths for independence as well as success.

Using the Maths For Life ‘Hierarchy of Independence’ she will demonstrate how to define the level of support offered to ensure parent / teacher / teaching assistant / SENCO are all on the same page and how to remove scaffolding in an incremental way to ensure that a student can understand and complete the task on their own.

Inclusion is often provided by support and assistance. We scaffold a student to succeed but how do we manage the scaffolding to still achieve success as well as independence?
