Learning to Learn
Help young children to learn by doing: developmental activities for young children or children with SEN
This book is brimming with ideas for practical activities for parents, carers and teachers to use with young children and children with special educational needs. For parents without training in education, it can be so difficult to know the steps to successful learning: the activities the child enjoys and helps him to make progress. While for teachers this provides a bank of activity ideas to meet the needs of each child.
“Merete Hawkins has written a book that is clear, comprehensive and practical. You will learn so much about such an interesting area of early development whilst learning how to implement it that you will just have to give it a go, and you won’t be disappointed when you do."
Josh Connick, Head of Early Years and Primary Explorers, Brookfields School
“Super amazing! Loved the format of the book with lots of pictures. Very clear, easy to follow. Our principal loved it as well. It was definitely worth it! ”

"This book is brilliant! It outlines the principles of the Waldon approach in a clear, concise manner. In addition to explaining the theory underpinning the process, it offers the reader the complete package from lists of recommended resources and assessment materials to clearly described and illustrated photographs of how to implement it. The general advice included at each step of the programme pre-empt potential issues providing a range of strategies to keep pupils engaged alongside top tips on how to increase support or adjust cognitive demands.
Merete’s deep understanding of the Waldon process and her passion for supporting pupils learning is evident on every page. I can highly recommend this text both to those who are just starting to use the WALDON approach but also as a helpful reference guide to those who have a more established understanding. This is certainly a text I will be using regularly. "
