What our customers say
“What is clear is to avoid rushing into larger goals. I now select more manageable targets for the children, thus enabling them to achieve their learning realistically.
“It has made us more focused on the barriers to learning, such as being more aware of the outside influences that impact students. Before, we may not have considered it.
Early Years Practitioner
“I particularly enjoyed the intervention module as it gave me a wide range of strategies – some I had never heard of! I am very excited to use them in my practice.
“Focused target setting has helped me to support staff in school with IEP targets. I now feel ready to complete the next step in ‘training the trainer’!
Learning Support Assistant (LSA)
“I am more flexible and understanding in my approach when working towards goals because I better understand the challenges and needs of a child with SEND, in terms of the possible barriers.
