SP210-22 Differentiating in the Classroom – The Blank Language Scheme


When we think of differentiation in the classroom, we often think of goals, reading groups and different worksheets. How do we differentiate for language and processing abilities? 

Used widely in Australia and the UK, the Blank Language Scheme offers a simple, efficient system for identifying pupils’ needs and adapting each lesson to that child - without all of the planning!

Delivered by a Speech and Language Therapist, this webinar will introduce you to the Blank Language scheme and explain its vital role in the Irish classroom. 

  • What is the Blank Language scheme?
  • Identifying the levels
  • Assessing a student
  • Using the Blank Language scheme in everyday lessons

The webinar is suitable for SNAs, class teachers, learning support teachers who work with primary school (Junior Infants up to 6th Class). This will not be suitable for pre-verbal students.
