Supporting learners with additional support needs

The RSHP resource offers learning activities to meet the diverse needs of learners in early learning, school, college and community settings. On occasion, learners with additional support needs, including those with mild or moderate learning disabilities, will benefit from additional or enhanced content. In this section, we offer a range of material that can support the work of teachers/facilitators in these circumstances. Material is organised under these headings:

1. PROGRAMMES + RESOURCES TO SUPPORT LEARNING

The programmes listed here have a range of audiences.

3. PUBLICATIONS

The publications listed provide opportunities to focus on a specific topic or theme. They have been written to support learners with a range of additional support needs. They may usefully add to the educator’s implementation of the main body of material in this RSHP resource.

4. IMAGES

Some learners with additional support needs or learning disabilities will benefit from images which are more explicit than those used in the main body of material in the RSHP resource. This is because some learners do not comprehend the meaning of an image if it is nuanced or in any way ambiguous.
