How you can help your SEN students to develop a greater understanding of PSHEE and citizenship – and why this is so important

Students with neurodevelopmental disorders often find the various and numerous concepts in PSHEE and Citizenship lessons incredibly difficult to understand. Yet once these concepts have been grasped, their development and progress in these areas is tremendous.

Which is why SEN Press has produced the SEN Press Starter Pack.

The SEN Press Starter Pack consists of 38 different readers which have been written to meet the learning needs of SEN students between the ages of 14 and 19 and which will enhance students understanding in an array of areas in PSHEE and Citizenship lessons, including:

Everyday Challenges
