SELF HELP SKILLS
Welcome to the Education Skills toolkit! Within this section you will find advice, resources and strategies about skills that are used and practiced within these environments.
It is important to note that we all learn differently and therefore different approaches may need to be tried in order for your child to be successful.
> As tempting as it is, don’t take over
> Break the task down into manageable chunks setting the ‘just right’ challenge
> There are different ways to learn; show the child, talk though the steps, physically support etc.
> Practice little and often e.g. daily for 5 minutes
> Problem Solve together – don’t correct them if they make a mistake but ask them what they need to do to fix it
