Children with language needs can often be heavily reliant on adults and other people monitoring their recall and understanding of information for them. This can often look like repetition of lots of words, many times and in slightly different ways. This can be doubly confusing and limits independence. By making verbal instructions and information visual provides, it provides us with something that we can see and refer back to for help. By teaching this skill to child we are not only helping to embed strategies to aid the retention of information, but we are supporting them to be more independent.
