Describe how checklists are used to assess children with special needs?

The use of checklists and achievement charts is highly effective in helping to support student learning. They help encourage the child to play an active role, not only in their assessments, but also in their learning process. By having the objectives and criteria established along side the child, it helps them to progress as they will have a better understanding of what they need to do. They can also be beneficial to show to parents/caregivers as they can see the improvement in their child over time and gives them a level of organisation that perhaps was lacking prior. In children with special needs, often executive functions (e.g controlling their behaviour) are missing. By providing a checklist, it helps to provide them with strategies which help them to overcome these weaknesses which is really important.

I have 8 years professional experience across 5 sectors, including 5 years Teaching and 1 year in Journalism. During my professional career I have taught for two companies, across four centres providing me with an abundance of experience working with children and a deep understanding of learning techniques. Additionally I also have an understanding of the importance of relaying information to parents regarding progress to make sure all parties are up to date and in sync to a common goal.

Aside from teaching English & Creative writing, professionally I create content for businesses in the form of social media content, articles, newsletters etc and teach aquatics. My strength in teaching lie within initially building a strong report with a child, from there I can then determine their strengths and weaknesses to focus my tuition on areas they are in need. To do this my method of teaching includes gently pushing academic boundaries to expand on their current knowledge whilst keeping the lessons informative and interesting. Outside of my professional life I am a family oriented person who regularly spends time volunteering for different charities.
