Yesterday we met a wonderful young boy at a ‘Building Learning Behaviour’ event organised by the Behavioural Support Advisory Team at Telford & Wrekin Council.
Jack, aged 6, has delayed Speech and Language Skills. 4 months ago he presented as very difficult to engage and wouldn’t even entertain reading or writing.
Jack’s teacher, Mrs Jill Betts, introduced StoryStarter into Jack’s class and the results have been amazing!
We’ll let Mrs Betts tell the story:
“LEGO has had a huge impact on Jack. He has become more confident and is now reading and writing and is out in the playground playing with the other children. It’s been phenomenal…huge. Two weeks ago, Jack astounded me by reading a book unsupported. He wrote a full page story this week on his own. From my heart I can say it’s helped Jack in all aspects of his life. I really believe in it. Does it work? Yes it does”. Jill Betts, Millbrook Primary School, Telford & Wrekin.
