“Why don’t you design a diary that specifically caters for students with special needs?”
This is the question we have been getting from principals of special needs schools repeatedly at education conferences.
The market asked and we have responded. Last week we launched the Communication Diary. Here are 5 reasons a special needs school should order the Communication Diary.
1. Parents require increased communication
Our Communication Diary allows increased communication between the school and parents. This keeps parents posted on the progress of their child and allows parents to communicate back to the school.
2. The Communication Diary is more suitable
Primary and secondary schools all over the country have their own journals which are tailored for each type of student and school. The feedback is that they don’t work for special needs students. For example special needs students don’t get homework. The Communication Diary is much more suitable in that it allows them to record personal information, their communication profile and their school experiences on a daily basis.
3. The Diary was designed by an SNA teacher
The Communication Diary was designed by a special needs teacher with intimate knowledge of the requirements of special needs students and who was able to create a bespoke diary that ideally suits this school community.
4. High Quality Diary
5. Students can set SMART Targets
It is possible to individualise an education plan for each student using SMART Targets. Each SNA can set out goals for each student that are (1) Smart (2) Measurable (3) Attainable (4) Relevant and (5) Time-bound.If you would like to obtain a sample of our Communication Diary or talk to a 4Schools.ie representative please contact 01-8081494 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
