What our customers say

Teacher

United Kingdom

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.

SENCO

United Kingdom

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.

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)

United Kingdom

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.
