Widgit Bulletin – looking towards the new term


Widigt have sent out a news bulletin containing resources that support learning. Out of the many useful resources I was attracted to the “Visual Timetable” this looks very useful for setting up and managing the difficult concept for learners with special needs to accept change by pre-warning of changes. Also there are resources on behaviour as well as the usual curriculum resources. If you are in a symbol-user setting then I am sure these resources would be of use. For more details continue reading below:-

The new academic year is just around the corner. Time to start planning for the new term? Have a look at our resources range – they are great for saving you from hours of creating your own, giving you more time to enjoy the summer holidays!

These resources are incredibly useful for non-verbal communication so behaviour prompting does not interrupt your teaching.
