Learning Aids

On this page you can find some resources which will help to support literacy and numeracy skills.

It is important to think about the learning intention when you are using learning aids. For example, if the learning intention is to be convert fractions into equivalent fractions then you could use a timetable grid to support your working memory. But, if the learning intention is to recall timetable facts quickly, it would not be okay to use the timetable grid to read the facts.

When writing at length, you may wish to explore the benefits of technology if spelling, handwriting, motor skills or remembering facts is challenging for you. Speech-to-text and text-to-speech can be quick ways to make a big writing or reading task more accessible for you. Remember to read over what you have composed to make sure it makes sense – check the spelling and punctuation.
