Some top tips for teachers


  • Recognize the frustrations students may have
  • Do not assume laziness is the issue
  • A summary at the end of each class of what was covered
  • Making sure the homework is taken down correctly, will help alleviate stress or worry that they will do the wrong thing and save time not doing the incorrect homework
  • Write a number of willing friends of the student’s numbers down on the front of their journal to allow them to ring and double-check on work that needs to be completed
  • Ensure any information or daily activities are given in a written format and not reliant on verbal communication
  • Make a daily checklist for the student to look over at the end of every day
  • Break down tasks
  • Notes and handouts may be a more viable option than copying a lot of notes down
