Organisation, Concentration and Short Term Memory 

For some children it is not just the task itself that can be difficult  but also organisation, concentration and short term memory. These needs can be evident if a child has dyslexia but not all children with these needs have dyslexia.

 

Organisation- have everything you need ready at the start, keep all the learning books, paper etc in one space

 

Concentration –  it's a good idea to create a routine which emphasises 'a little and often' rather than trying to squeeze too much work into a longer session. break the tasks down into small chunks, choose a quiet space, have no devices on. 

 

Short term memory - have visual cues to help your child remember what they are doing
