  • Language for Thinking – a programme used one-to-one or small group to develop children's language from concrete to the abstract
  • Pre-teaching – a weekly group to teach children the key vocabulary that will be used in up-coming lessons
  • Debate club/Games groups – weekly groups led by a learning mentor, focussing on listening and responding appropriately, or turn-taking and sharing
  • Word mats and working walls – resources to support vocabulary relevant to the lesson or topic
  • Social stories - short descriptions of a particular situation, event or activity, which includes specific information about what to expect in that situation and why, written specifically for the child and shared with them daily
