Primary Schools Pack

HemiHelp has brought out a new updated and much expanded pack for Early Years and Primary educators:

Guidelines for Teachers: The Child with Hemiplegia in Primary EducationGuidelines for Teachers

Price: £20.00

Edited by Liz Barnes, a HemiHelp Trustee who has a son with the condition, the pack includes specialist articles on such topics as:

  • Adapting a PE lesson
  • Tweaking computers for improved access
  • Handwriting
  • Social and behavioural difficulties

It also includes case studies, an extensive list of resources and equipment and an ‘About Me’ form for parents to tell the school all about their child's individual needs and challenges.

Its central message is that inclusion isn’t just about the externals, it’s about understanding and valuing the individual child, and the partnership between parents/carers and educators that gives that child the best possible access to education.
