What they say about SLC INSETs
I don’t just have the one strategy to try next week, now I have two or three. I am excited to put [them] into practise, not only with children with SaLT but my whole class can benefit.”
“Perfect mix of hands on and time to make notes.
Excerpts from Feedback forms: Winchester Teaching Schools Alliance (WTSA) INSET day – January 2017:
Q: What were the most interesting/useful bits of the speech and language INSET?
- The recording and drawing from the child saying how she felt
- Video showing children good listening with teacher and TA / active listening demonstration
- Individual strategies and the understanding that we, as a school can do something for these children even if they aren’t ‘bad enough’ to qualify for a SaLT referral.
- Being given useful, practical activities to do
- Having a teacher with me from the same school so we could agree to start strategies
- I don’t feel overloaded with information, you totally met your aim.
- Links with literacy and language
- The vocab learner/Word Wise Whizz strategy
- The narrative ‘Hand’ and glove strategy
- Active listening flash cards
- Waiting 10 seconds strategy
