My Aim

I work to support children and young people with communication needs to achieve their academic, social and personal potential. I help young people who have communication difficulties to still do well at school, aspire to be their best, and take part in society. I also believe that children and young people make better progress when they enjoy what they do, and when everyone around them is fully supported to help them achieve. So I also strive to make therapy fun!

Clocks go back tonight ๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ

And if learning to tell the time is tricky, don't forget there are a lot of words involved.
๐Ÿ’กTip:Make it visual ๐Ÿ‘€

Writing the words around the outside of your clock and having different colour hands can help:

๐Ÿ”ดRed hand first with the words๐Ÿ“
๐Ÿšฆgreen hand next with the numbers ๐Ÿ”ข
(Except for o'clock, there's always one exception to the rule ๐Ÿ™„)

I use this clock printed from Twinkl Resources - the words are colour coded too to make it even more visual ๐Ÿ˜€
