Target Identification Spreadsheet

We have created a spreadsheet to help you identify grammatical targets for the children you work with and which also shows you how each structure would be coded using the SHAPE CODING system. It is quite complex and contains a lot of information, so take your time to go through it and don’t be put off at first glance! See the video introduction below.

You can download the spreadsheet and save one copy for each child. This could be used as a running record, so it may follow a child through over a long period of time.
