The curriculum has an emphasis on communication, personal and social skills, independence skills and sensory needs. This includes visits out of school (e.g. walking to the park, shopping, cafe visits), activities in the Sensory Studio, Use of the computer, Attention Autism sessions, LARKPAC sensory communication sessions, individualised programmes for children on the autistic spectrum and sessions focusing on children’s individual communication needs.
As we are a secondary aged group we really aim to work on skills that will be useful to the students in the adult world of supported living, assisted living and use of leisure.We try to assist each student to access the sensory diet they need each day to help them achieve their best with the least anxiety and best communication. Learning should be fun, so smiles are important. Actually you will hear giggles during our Attention Autism sessions!
