Useful Websites for Children with Additional Needs.

I spend a lot of time researching resources which will suit my class. I find the likes of Twinkl okay for writing sheets etc but I have really had to search for more meaningful work for my class. I have come across some great websites and said I would share them here to save others some time!

IXL Website: I use this site a lot with my class. It is absolutely excellent for working on skills for children with autism. It is divided by subject, class and skill, e,g, counting 1-3, 1-5, 1-10, 1-20. There's lots of excellent auditory games with visuals to match. Almost all the games have a voiceover explaining the games, along with clear visuals to make it easy to understand. They have lovely lessons on patterns too which again, are so visual and simple to follow. Many children with ASD may find it difficult to sit down and put pen to paper outside of their structured work environment. These lessons are interactive, and they are achieving the same skill as they would be on paper. Win win!

This site is really for speech and language therapists but very often teachers take on this role in school and so I find myself searching for resources regularly on this website which have lovely worksheets and links to other S&l websites.
