Special Direct is full of exciting and inspiring resources to help children with special needs.

If you are working with children who have Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Speech and Language difficulties we have lots of resources that you will love.  We work hard with Subject Specialists, Advisors, Therapists, Teachers, SENCO’s and parents to design and develop lots of useful resources for your classroom and home.

Classroom Strategies for Supporting Children with Poor Memory.

The most significant classroom strategy is to reduce the potential for memory overload in what we ask of the children.  One reason many children find the transition from play-based learning to more formal learning is that suddenly the memory load, for both curriculum information and classroom management, is significantly increased.
