Learning Tracks is a planning and tracking document written to support the planning and assessment of learning for children and young people with severe and complex learning disabilities. It was designed by the authors whilst teaching at a school for children and young people with severe and complex learning disabilities.
This easy to use method is ready to implement in any setting to help assess children at the lowest levels of learning. It gives you, in a snapshot, where to focus your efforts with a class, a group or an individual child in order to help them progress in a meaningful way. At the very early stages of learning the steps that children and young people make can be small but incredibly significant for them and those that teach them. However, it can be problematic to evidence and formally recognise these achievements and plan next steps.
Learning Tracks presents a framework to recognise achievement at these early levels and plan for progression through challenge, breadth and application.
The Learning Tracks framework for recognising achievement at very early levels of learning: can help teachers understand the way their children may be learning, offers a vocabulary for describing the learning, offers a structure for planning the learning.
