Increasing numbers of children find it a challenge to stay focused on a task and follow even simple instructions in the classroom.

Teaching Children to Listen outlines a whole-school approach to improving listening skills. It begins by looking at why listening skills are important and how to overcome barriers to achieving them, before pinpointing the behaviours that children need to learn in order to be a good listener. The book includes:

The Listening Skills Rating Scale - a quick assessment, which will able you to rate children on each of the four rules of good listening.

Advice on using these findings to inform individual education plans that focus on a specific area of difficulty.

40 activities, including games to target whole-class listening and exercises particularly suitable for the Early Years.

Each activity sets out what equipment you need, tips for facilitating and ideas for differentiation. Perfect for children aged 3-11, all the games and ideas have been tried-and-tested, and have proved successful with children with a range of abilities, including those with special needs.
