Supporting children with additional support needs

It is important to remember that no one expects you to now take on the formal role of a teacher. However, in the same way that you have always helped your child to grow and develop, there are ideas for activities that might be helpful for you and your child.

Your child’s school will be the main source of ideas. There are also lots of ideas for learning at home on this site, in the Autism Toolbox and Addressing Dyslexia Toolkit. These websites support inclusive education for all children and young people.

A bank of resources to help parents support children with complex additional support needs is available on this Wakelet. Parents can access the resources directly for use at home any time or schools may direct parents to specific resources as part of their planned learning programme.

The REACH website is designed for young people who require additional support. It has new information about learning at home and support available to young people.
