Information and advice which is readily available to teenagers to help them overcome or prevent teen issues (primarily in the media) doesn’t cater for teenagers who view the world in a wholly different way – making such information and guidance incomprehensible.
Which is why SEN Press has produced the Teen Issue Value Pack, suitable for students aged between 14 and 19 with autism or other special educational needs and a reading age of around seven.
The Teen Issues Value Pack consists of:
Six story books, each exploring a different teen issue, with relevance to the ASDAN award programmes ‘Transition Challenge’ and ‘Towards Independence’. Titles (and topics) include, “Emma and Laura” (girls’ personal hygiene), “Going to the Pub” (responsible attitudes to alcohol), “Jake is Gay” (dealing with being gay), “Matt Gets Wise” (boys’ personal hygiene), “The Tattoo” (making responsible decisions), and “Speaking in Public” (self-confidence).
A CD-ROM providing electronic versions of the above titles, making it ideal for interactive whiteboard presentations and for students who would also benefit from listening to the text. It is also possible to edit and save the text to make your own story, create differentiated texts and personalise the text with your students’ names to enhance engagement.
An extensive range of activity worksheets and interactive activities that encourage reading comprehension. Activities include, Missing Words, True or False, Multiple Choice, Words & Pictures, Picture Search, Keyword Flashcards, Wordsearch, Spot the Difference and How Well Did You Read?.
Supporting resources for teachers including page-by-page notes for all the stories and assessment resources (feedback sheets and student record sheets).
The complete set of resources containing two copies of each of the six readers, the complete teacher book, and the CD Rom is available for £139 plus VAT. Individual elements from the pack are also available separately.
