Abstract

The journey towards Inclusive education has meant that teachers are working with a more diverse range of children than previously. This article outlines a technique that Learning Support teachers may find useful, albeit for a relatively small number of children, and is based on questions arising from a presentation at the I.L.S.A.

So hov So how can teachers help children who are failing at their first step in literacy development.'
