Willow Class

Willow class pupils learn best from child centred approaches to learning. Intensive interaction, interactive story- telling and Interactive music provide a staple diet to develop two way social communication. The pupils benefit from high visual elements to learning such as symbols and pictures but within a low arousal environment. Attention Autism is used to develop attention to another’s agenda and to increase the time that the children can concentrate and learn within a group setting. Augmentative communication strategies such as Communication Grids are used to help children make their needs known to others. Hands on sensory activities are included every day to enable children to fully engage with the curriculum.
