During the training that I offer in person and online for schools, families and other organisations, there are some key areas of support that are often requested. I thought it would be useful to provide a link to some of these along with some brilliant resources.
1. I am always asked to provide links to information and resources that will support making teaching and learning accessible to all. This is an area where there are some fantastic resources available and I would definitely suggest beginning with some of the links below

2. Where to begin in terms of the teaching of reading and particularly the teaching of phonics
https://www.phonicbooks.co.uk/letters-and-sounds-need-to-know/ (useful to consider how these books can supplement the offer that you're providing for learners who are at phases 2 and above)
https://www.phonicsforpupilswithspecialeducationalneeds.com/rainbow-readers (I love the rainbow readers and writers)

I recently ran a whole school training day in London, and it was great to have the opportunity to talk to professionals about their experiences and needs, Thank you to Daniela and the staff for the fantastic feedback and a truly wonderful day full of enthusiastic and passionate staff.
