Active Listening for Active Learning  

Active Listening for Active Learning

£65 (FREE postage)

Sample pages

Children with attention problems, poor thinking skills, avoidance tactics, over-reliance on adults and low self-esteem present real problems.

Why don’t these children ask for help or seek clarification?

This is a resource for all teachers who recognise children who are too nervous or inexperienced to ask questions; those with language difficulties who nod vacantly when asked if they understand; those who insist they are right and see only one point of view; those who lack self-help and questioning strategies and those who cannot distinguish facts from guessing or opinion.

Both whole-class and individual strategies are provided to support these children at the different stages of their journey towards becoming effective listeners and confident communicators, with a wealth of photocopiable resources, detailed language activities and assessment procedures.

Are you frustrated by children who switch off, fail to listen, or won’t pay attention? If the answer is ‘yes’, then this book is for you.
By highlighting the links between behaviour and hidden language processing difficulties, this book will help you understand why some children find listening so difficult, why they disengage and seem to lack the motivation to learn. In Helping Children Hang On To Your Every Word Maggie Johnson provides practical solutions that will help you support children overcome the barriers they face.
Well known to many people working with children with communication difficulties, the author’s involvement in mainstream schools makes this a very practical and readable book, packed with well illustrated examples and scenarios.

So, I've got Dyslexia ... now what? 

£6 (FREE postage)

What does it mean to have dyslexia? How does a young person diagnosed with dyslexia make sense of what it is all about?
Often adults are uncertain of the implications themselves and unsure about what to tell children. This book will help all those involved get a much better understanding of dyslexia and what to expect in terms of support.

Suitable for children from about 7 to 14 years old, the book provides a framework that will enable an adult and child to work through the sections together, remove some of the mystery that often surrounds dyslexia, and take a pragmatic approach to dealing with it.

 

Bullying: Managing fear in young children  Bullying: Managing fear in young children

£6 post free 

When a child is suffering because of persistent teasing or where a child has been bullied, the adults in their lives are often left feeling ‘if only I could do something to help...’. This book provides one method of giving such help using techniques taken from cognitive behavioural therapy and NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming).


Suitable for professionals and parents who are concerned that a child is vulnerable to bullying and/or teasing, this book provides a discreet approach for helping the child to cope better. The ‘talk-through’ approach aims to provide a practical framework for you to ‘get started’.

 

Fireworks: managing anger in young children  Fireworks: Managing anger in young children

£5 post free 

Do you have a child with a very short fuse . . . or a high level of anxiety? A child that overreacts in most situations? There can be many reasons why children react angrily, and here is a discreet approach to help them to understand and then learn how to control their angry feelings and reactions.
Based loosely on cognitive behaviour therapy and using a ‘talk-through’ approach, you will be able to help the child to think about his/her feelings in a different way and feel more in control of them.
There are twelve, clearly laid out practical sessions that use fireworks as a model for understanding and working on strategies to manage anger – the initial spark that lights the fuse, the speed at which the fuse burns, and the explosive firework.
Hannah Mortimer’s practical and user-friendly approach has been used successfully in both home and educational settings.

"Expertly but simply written … superbly but constructively illustrated ... an absolute must have for any educational psychologist, teacher, teaching assistant or parent. Jam-packed full of practical ideas to help young children manage anxiety, this book brings together bits of cognitive behaviour therapy and solution focused therapy in a very clever and interactive way. Aimed essentially at individual children, I am sure that the 12 sessions outlined in this book could easily be adapted to working with small groups of children, which would then prove even more beneficial and cost-effective" (reviewed in The Psychologist).
