4. How you can help

Many of the strategies suggested here will be familiar to you. They may be used to prevent problems developing, or to support children who have been identified as having difficulties.

Always remember to work together. Talk to the child about what they find helpful. Children will find it much easier to learn if they are encouraged to think about what works for them. Don’t be afraid to experiment together, and encourage the child to plan and evaluate their learning.
