This month’s books:
The Anxiety Workbook for Supporting Teens Who Learn Differently
The teenage years are associated with high levels of uncertainty and anxiety, compounded by academic and social demands, and physical and emotional changes. They can be especially tough for teenagers who learn differently.
This workbook contains a host of practical activities for teachers and other adults supporting young people with learning differences, whether at home or in the classroom. Drawing on their years of first hand experience, and up to the minute research, the authors outline a trans-diagnostic framework for identifying what might be behind a student’s behaviour. They show how the first crucial step all practitioners must take is to work out what could be causing a teen’s feelings of anxiety or uncertainty, and how this can be addressed.
The activities in this workbook are organised into three sections, each addressing one of the three key areas where anxiety or uncertainty can be found: the structural, sensory and social domains. The tried-and-tested worksheets and activities present a much-needed alternative to a diagnosis-led approach. They can be used with any teenager, with or without a diagnosis, in classroom settings, intervention groups, or one to one work. The Anxiety Workbook will help you to really understand and address the needs of the SEN students you support, thereby improving their well-being, confidence and self-esteem and empowering them to get the most out of their education.
Exploring Science with Dyslexic Children and Teens
This book is a collection of ideas, activities and approaches for science learning, to support kids with learning differences aged 9+ to grow in confidence, recall and understanding. The multi-sensory and fun ideas and activities can be adapted to suit individual students’ needs and skills, and curriculum stage. Written by an experienced science teacher, the book includes mnemonics, art, drama and poetry activities, board games, card games, and more. All of these strategies will aid neurodiverse students’ science learning and memory through boosting their creative thinking, encouraging a play-based and exploratory approach to science.
Whether you want to get creative, play a game or try out a fun experiment, you can dip in and out of the activities to suit your student’s unique learning style. The activities in the book will help creative thinkers who learn differently to take alternative approaches to tricky topics, grasping a fundamental understanding of key scientific concepts, whilst gaining confidence as the scientists of tomorrow.
Meet Creatia, Persisto and Willforce. They are strong, determined and creative, and they represent the strengths that dyslexia can bring to your life. Together they encourage you to use your skills and talents to be confident in what you do – and shrink the villain Mr Dyspicibilia!
This is a fun and interactive resource for grown-ups and children to work through together, with drawing and writing activities and examples to open up helpful discussions and find practical solutions that put the dyslexic child’s self-esteem and self-understanding at the fore. The strategies in the book are brought to life through the three superheroes who help you develop a child’s unique strengths to tackle the everyday challenges they may experience with reading, writing, staying organised or keeping track of the time. The colourful illustrations, cartoons and dialogue encourage children to name their feelings, identify challenges and recognise their own strengths in any situation.
