This bundle of speech and language resources for schools  provides a range of material aimed at developing imaginative language and non literal language in KS1/2. Pupils may be participating in SEAL and/or PHSE programmes within school but some children may be demonstrating particular problems with the language aspects of social communication. This can effect their learning and social inclusion. These children may also, but not necessarily, have a diagnosis of ASD or Asperger’s Syndrome.

This bundle of items is for children who have a very literal understanding of language. This means that they fail to understand phrases such as ‘I blew my top’, or ‘I was falling about laughing’. Such children may also find it difficult to make inferences, that is, to understand information which is implied; they are often unable to draw conclusions about what they have seen, heard or read, and their verbal reasoning skills are limited.

All items except PRAG13, Sarcasm, now IN COLOUR.
