Generalisation ideas

  • Photo albums:  create an album of familiar people and ask your student to find themselves.  You could also use group images with your student and ask them to find themselves.
  • Language development tasks:  use visuals to support understanding of personal pronouns such as I/me/mine vs you/them/your
  • Find your name tasks:  at the beginning of each session lay out a selection of name tags with photos of students and have your student find their own and place it on a special space.
