counting

Sorry my work with children at very early levels of learning across the range of p scales most of whom are in special schools though Some in mainstream

The p scales could be used to provide a broad description of an individuals pupils level of functioning And then annotation notes could be added. According to individual progress within levels that is what special schools use MAPP for What would be best for you depends upon whether you have cohort to set it up for or whether you are dealing with few individuals If you look at the articles here or on my website very special maths you will find information about the constituent parts of counting from which you can draw ideas about what the child needs to learn

P levels were used for reporting but were not detailed enough to cover individual children's really small steps The Rochford review has been looking at engagement profile. But that is not specifically mathematical Some people use MAPP tailored to own needs. I suggest you post your query on SLD forum

Are there any schools that use a baseline tool for assessing their SEN pupils in maths in the lower years that they would recommend? Many thanks.
