Barrier worksheets help children progress from listening to ‘one choice’ level instructions e.g. “Colour the car” to ‘four choice’ instructions, “Draw a big spider under the tree”. The games can be easily adapted to let children lead the activity which promotes a whole range of language skills. Ideal for group sessions but can be adapted for one-to-one settings for drill and practice.
