In this short survey we are looking at the key strategies that teachers use to support children who have communication and/or learning difficulties. After completing the survey, there may be opportunities for your school to receive support in implementing one of the strategies.

Question Title

Question Title

* 10. Evidence suggests that incorporating the use of picture symbols in the classroom and at home helps children access the curriculum, improves self-regulation, reduces distractibility, and encourages greater independence (see:
