"I support a young lady in Yr 6 at a school in Warwick who has severe learning difficulties. At her last review in April she could not read any words except her first name. I had suggested for some time that they use Communicate: In Print symbols to support her. The new TA took this on board! Last week at her Year 6 annual review, the student was able to read her own responses to the pupil questions with very little prompting. She now enjoys reading and is remembering the words/symbols from day to day, which was always the difficulty behind her lack of developing a sight vocabulary. The parents were amazed and I was nearly in tears! "
