Learning to Help Myself

Many pupils struggle with skills of independence. This can be due to a number or combination of reasons such as sensory issues, motor planning and sequencing issues, anxiety and fine motor difficulties. The resources within this section were created to support pupils with this. Some of the difficulties you might observe might be in:

  • Eating at mealtimes (including opening packets or using cutlery)
  • Dressing quickly for school or PE
  • Organising themselves and their school or homework

Materials here were created to help pupils understand and work out what to do in some of these situations. Some resources were designed for pupils who are cognitively able with good language skills and others were created for those who would benefit from simpler and less language based resources.
Since all materials are editable, you can change them to meet your pupils’ needs, abilities, interests, concentration span and learning styles.
