Our aim in supporting a child with Additional Support Needs (ASN) would always be for them to achieve the best possible level of independence. There are a wide range of strategies which might be used for different children and situations, some of which are described in this leaflet. Flexibility in your approach is a core message. Each skill could be used to support a number of different situations providing it is tailored to the individual child you are supporting. Children will respond in different ways and keeping a record of what does and doesn’t work helps to build a picture of successful approaches for that individual.
