We've preselected "All levels" for you, but you can change your study level at any

you to the beginning of the module.
Select a child in your school you know but don't teach. Observe this child and
complete an Engagement Profile. You may wish to:
Record your observations so you can look back over them;
Share any recording with a colleague to get their views and perspectives.
Consider any home/school area of need for your selected child. Consult parents
or carers and agree possible targets and strategies. Consider any multidisciplinary
area of need for your selected child. Consult any multidisciplinary staff
involved and agree possible transdisciplinary targets and strategies.
Watch the video of Zoe working on language and object understanding.
For the child you have selected and using information
you have gained from multidisciplinary staff, parents or carers and from
completing your Engagement Profile and Scale:
Work in conjunction with the class teacher/staff;
Map an engagement strategy against each IEP target for the child, developing a strategy to enhance
the child's active participation;
Agree a plan and time scale for carrying out the strategies and
The Engagement Profile in action (3)
Track the child's progress with class staff, noting changes to the strategies
and interventions, and the outcomes for the child's learning. You can use
repeated observations and measures on the engagement chart and scale to
Review this monitoring and the outcomes. Write a report to show the steps
taken to produce any improved outcomes related to sustained interventions
with a focus on engagement, detailing what was done and the evidence you
have to show improvement.
