At Step by Step, we steer clear of the 'one size fits all' approach.

Step by Step Learning provides individualised services to Paediatric, school-aged children.
We support our client’s in their learning journey, and equip them with the skills required to each reach their individual potential.

A little reminder as the year closes, positive affirmation works wonders! 🙌 #stepbysteplearning ...

Reading is the gateway to a child’s education and should be a priority in every family with young children! Not only does it enhance literacy, speech and communication skills, but also social emotional skills and more!

Recently, we have discovered @vooks, so let us introduce you to one of our new favourite tools! Vooks is a streaming library of ad-free, kid-safe animated story books that are read aloud through the app. The books literally come to life and the words on each page are bolded when they are narrated so children can easily follow along – helping them to learn new vocabulary, site words and language. Plus, this type of narration helps children learn how to use inflection, tone, pitch, intonation and more skills that we develop when learning to read. BUT our most favourite thing – there are lesson plans that correspond with the book titles so you can build extra skills at home! #stepbysteplearning

In addition to our ‘School Readiness’ Program for our 2021 Kindergartens, we will also be running workshops for our more senior students.

Sessions will be run for all stages across Primary and High School for both Maths and English.

While we want you to (and really encourage you to!) take a break in order to recharge, we do also think it’s SUPER important to keep training your brain! Just like any other muscle in your body, you need to train and practise skills with your brain so that it is prepared for the workload of school when it returns!

Our workshops will be ran by Speech Pathologists, qualified Teachers and our experienced Tutors.

A phrase you should get acquainted with: ‘USE YOUR WORDS’ 🙈

Provide your child with lots of praise every time they say a word. Sometimes, we also need to give our little ones motivation to speak!

Often, we are able to predict what it is a child is wanting when they are pointing at an object, however it is important that they are encouraged to tell us verbally. For example, if your child points or brings you a book, you may say “Do you want to read?” or “Tell Mummy what you want to do…”

Implementing these small changes and making them a habit will certainly encourage your child to speak! #stepbysteplearning

Learning through play applies to all ages! Learning tedious skills such as multiplication doesn’t have to be boring!

People who believe their talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies and input from others have a growth mindset. Almost all of their energy is put into learning how to BE better and then DOING better!

To us, feedback is vital to growth! And it is one thing that we discuss daily with our team!

Our approach is very hands on, because we believe that this is a journey for us all. Whether we are supporting your family with speech therapy or tutoring, your children’s wins are our wins that we all celebrate together - no matter how big or small they are!

Our families will know that a number one focus for us is building up a fantastic relationship between your child’s educator and your child. A great relationship leads to trust, and trust means support, and when these fundamentals are established, the real magic happens #stepbysteplearning

How exciting that our Year 11 students of 2020 are now Year 12 students! As exciting as this, it is very important for you to understand that you now need to be in the right frame of mind, everything you do (assessment wise) from here on our counts towards your HSC!

Don’t let that daunt you, we are trying to motivate you. It is important to understand that your overall HSC results are made up of ‘internal’ exams being the assessments you complete throughout the year at school, and ‘external’ exams being the final exams you will sit in October-November 2021.

Now is the perfect time to get in the right frame of mind and set yourself up for success. Don’t leave it too late. If you are needing support in any of your subjects please reach out to our team 🙌🏼 #stepbysteplearning

A combination of carefully selected toys and guidance from an informed professional can lead to an abundance of language! Toys can facilitate language development, and ‘learning through play’ is a strategy we are very big on here at SBSL.

This is why we ask parents to indicate what their child is interested in: unicorns, spiderman, fortnite, etc….so we can cater to their interests and lesson plan around these interests! #stepbysteplearning

A strategy we use when encouraging children to use more than one word utterances: Extending.

Similar to expanding, extending is the encouragement of longer sentences. For example, if your child says “Time for food”, you may say “Yes, it is time for food. It is time for food because we are hungry!”

Your speech pathologist will use this strategy, along with many others during therapy sessions. However more importantly, they will train you as a parent to be able to use these strategies in everyday interactions so that you are communicating with your child in a way that will stimulate language growth and development 😍

HASS aka Australian Humanities and Social Science 🌏

We found this new range by @pascal_press targeting HASS, they can be used to further assist students to understand the world. Each book is organised into units that follow History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, Economics and Business. The stimulus materials help students through researching, questioning, analysing, communicating, evaluating and reflecting in each unit.

We love the simple layout of this book making it super easy to follow.

There are also assessments at the end which can be implemented to assess students’ knowledge – our favourite part 😉

Overall, a valuable tool that enhances engagement and one we think many families could benefit from!

Not all activities in the holidays need to be super busy and costly. We love this idea of a nature hunt and finding items that match the colours of the rainbow! #stepbysteplearning

Visuals are a great tool for reducing anxiety and teaching flexibility and structure. Typically, it is a tool used with our younger clients, as well as those with Autism or communication difficulties, who benefit from using visual supports.

We find that by having a visual support, it increases engagement and independence. It reduces feelings of anxiety by reducing unpredictability, as children are able to understand more clearly what is happening next.

There are apps that you can use for your older children, but having a tangible schedule works wonders for your younger children as they can be super involved when mapping out each day!

Do you use visual supports within your home or daily routine? We would love to know! #stepbysteplearning

You guys… particularly our high school students! Your brain is not on holidays! Your brain is a muscle and like all muscles, needs consistent activity to perform at an optimal level. This is why you should be doing some study during the holidays so your brain is warmed up and good to go, when you return to school. It doesn’t need to be super strenuous, but a little light reading, or a few practise questions a day goes a long way!

It’s important to enjoy your break, but don’t forget to feed your mind too!
