Reviews

"Devised by Dr Victoria Joffe as part of a research project funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the Vocabulary Enrichment Intervention Programme is a comprehensive intervention pack aimed for use with secondary pupils who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN)… Detailed plans are provided for all sessions, along with a DVD with pictures, templates and frameworks. Homework tasks known as 'Missions to achieve' are also part of the intervention… Having fun is a priority in the sessions, and activities are varied and age-appropriate." — Bristol SENCO Newsletter
