This site aims to provide English language exercises for Special Needs students. It is aimed at students who have difficulties with English language, particularly with expressing themselves in written form and communications difficulties generally. A multi-sensory approach to both reading and writing is recognised as the best approach for these children. While the site is geared to Special Needs students, it may be of interest to English teachers in general. The exercises are designed to be completed online but may be downloaded in Word format or in PDF format. It is expected that the students would work individually and at their own pace. In addition the site provides an extensive list of web links to useful resources both for English language teachers and for Special Needs teachers.
