Help needed with statutory assesment form !


 Share

Recommended Posts

Im completing this form -never done one before, and my brain has decided its Friday teatime and has given up on me,

can anyone help with the definition of verbal comprehension ? - does this mean being able to understand what they are being told -eg, give me the ball - or - put the ball in the bucket

symbolic understanding - is it that one object represents another ? or that they can understand symbols !

 

help please !

This link might help with clarifying symbolic functioning (there's other info in the document too)

and this one will hopefully clarify verbal reasoning (verbal comprehension)

You are not alone - my weekend homework is to write up a TAC and complete a statutory assessment request - once upon a time I thought I worked with young children but more and more I find I have become a report writer and panel beater! (joke - all cases now have to go before a panel to get anything - so support for children is very much reliant on how well a case is presented - so much for a level playing field in early intervention :angry: )

we dont have area senco's anymore - well not a real person, more a disembodied voice on a telephone !

i have my advisory teacher who has been very helpful, so i am going to call her next week - just wanted to clarify things so i could get the right info before i did.
