Synopsis

Time Matters A Practical Resource to Develop Time Concepts and Self-Organisation Skills in Older Children and Young People by Janet Pembery, Clare Doran, Sarah Dutt

Time Matters is a practical resource to help children and young people learn about time. Time is usually taught through the Primary school years, teachers working in Secondary schools have been very surprised to discover these gaps in students understanding of calendar time, having assumed that these skills have been acquired at an earlier age. This practical resource: * helps to teach the essential skills needed to carry out a range of time-related concepts e.g. telling the time on a clock * can be used by older children, young people and adults who have learned some of the key concepts but need more in-depth knowledge, further practice, or opportunities to practise skills in a functional way * includes case studies and the rationale for working on different aspects of time, teaching worksheets and also practical strategies and activities to develop life skills which affect us all e.g. making and keeping appointments, travelling, using calendars and diaries etc. * can be used in a range of settings including: Education, Health and Social Care.

Reviews

Written by speech therapists this excellent set of resources covers a significant gap in the market. Informative, well written, clear and easy to use, it will prove to be invaluable to a range of professionals (and parents) that work with young people from 10 years old into early adulthood. Chapter headings include: assessment, estimation and perception, calendar, clock, vocabulary, organisation and school time. Each chapter includes clear explanations of the issues, interesting facts and tips, assessment and self assessment tools, reflection points and a range of projects and activities. Examples are up to date, with realistic scenarios. In a wire bound, A4 format, all pages are in greyscale (perfect for photocopying) and there are some materials on the CD-Rom which adds to the flexibility of this resource. The book concludes with a chapter on specific needs and settings, followed by additional resources and references. Highly recommended. - Diana Murdoch, Research Assistant at University of Edinburgh, formerly a SENCo (from nasen Connect) The authors

's understanding of time followed by strategies, games and activities to teach clock and calendar time, promote better estimation and perception of time and improve time management skills. - Special Children Magazine'
