PORIC provides a wealth of ideas to assess and develop the linguistic concepts (descriptive vocabulary) needed to access the Foundation and Key Stage 1 curricula. It is based on the core vocabulary and linguistic concepts incorporated in Ann Locke's 'Living Language' programme which underpins most of the Maths and Science curriculai in all four countries of the UK. it is an invaluable resource for staff supporting children who need more help to learn these important words.

PORIC is a long established product that has been used by many teachers and Therapists, it was written by Glinette Woods and Deborah Acors in 1999. The publisher retired and the authors have worked with Henrietta to produce a brand new edition which is now published by Elklan.

  • Printable downloads with all same ideas to develop the concepts but organised in the order in which children acquire the vocabulary.

I have been working on a wide range of concepts with various speech and language children of all primary ages and abilities. PORIC concepts in developmental levels by Glinette Woods and Deborah Acors has been a valuable resource. It provides simple step by step advice of the order of which to approach the concept starting with a real life hands on relation to the concept, objects and finally leading onto pictures for the child to relate their understanding to.

It is a quick easy resource to use that gives you ideas of what to use in the session which saves a lot of time and resource hunting.

As a speech and language LSA at a school working with both mainstream and special educational needs children it has given me a great insight on how to approach teaching concepts for a wide range of children.
