We start each day with a pupil led Soundabout style Good Morning which is great fun as the pupils dictate what happens next. We have daily physiotherapy sessions which may involve equipment such as an acheeva bed, standing frames, walkers, Langham Steps, physio bench, physio wedge and ball. Time is given to work on individual tasks from the Profound Curriculum and 1:1 work. Multi-sensory sessions in class or in the Sensory Studio are based on the whole school termly topic and are always hugely successful and much loved by pupils and staff. P.E. is often a music and movement based activity but we also like games such as New-Age Kurling, skittle and Boccia. Life skills, such as eating and drinking, are a focus at break and lunchtime and washing hands and face and teeth cleaning are part of our lunchtime routine.
Aromatherapy & Massage is a favourite activity as is our much valued L.A.R.C. Pack (rhythm & touch). We love our ICT session where we can try eye-gaze technology, use a switch operated toy or maybe have a visual / auditory experience without input.
Intensive Interaction is just part of the way we communicate and is beyond doubt the way through to many of our pupils. Its success can be quite remarkable.
We look forward to a week of wondrous experiences when the Multi-Sensory Art Project creates an environment within a geodome that is not only based on the term’s topic but also linked with Artists exhibiting at Roche Court, a sculpture Park near Salisbury. It is truly amazing and is a wholly multi-sensory learning environment, all the more special as it is contained within an atmospheric dome.
