Everybody Worries- Free eBook
Oxford University Press have published a free eBook, titled 'Everybody Worries' by Jon Burgerman. The book is designed as a picture story to support young people who are worried about the Coronavirus. Caroline Chan has also created a musical, singing voice over of the story and published to YouTube, to support SEN pupils engage with the story through music. Links to both the eBook and musical version can be found below.
Hospital Communication Board
The hospital communication board in the link below can be used for all hospital visits. It can be used to support understanding, through supporting adults pointing to the appropriate visual during interactions. It can also be used directly by the pupil to communicate their needs and requests through pointing, or to support verbal requests if appropriate.
