5. Use of a reader/prompter
a. What can be done? - The child would be tested separately from other
children in the class and the reader would read the instructions for the test
and each question type to the child. The reader would normally be the childâ€™s Learning Support Assistant (LSA).
b. What evidence is required? â€“ Confirmation from the head/SENCO of the
normal adjustments undertaken for a child. This would normally be for a child who was used to working regularly with a reader in the classroom.
c. Who would this be appropriate for? â€“ Children with a reading age much lower than their actual age. Use of a prompter may be considered for a child with severe attention difficulties, this would be to ensure that the child keeps on task.
d. Other matters to consider â€“ testing the child apart from his cohort is
necessary because of the need for conversation.
