We are a very happy class of 7 pupils with the diagnosis of Autism.
The teachers of the class are Wiola Sibley and Becci Broyd and the TAs are Charlotte, Nicki and Faye. We are also currently waiting on a new TA to join our team.
We are a very active class who enjoy exploring our environment and like to play!
We are the youngest class in the ‘Autism corridor’ and we are learning about the class and school routines and boundaries. We are beginning to learn how to use our individual schedules and we follow a number of specialist learning programmes, including TEACCH and Attention Autism. We are learning to use a range of communication systems in order to support our abilities to communicate. Some of us use PECS, or PODD, some of us use objects of reference and some are great at using signing and MAKATON.
Our days are active and exciting. We love forest school, PE, hydro and Jacuzzi and are also beginning to enjoy our class outings to a range of local parks and community spaces.
Most of all, however, we like to keep busy and have fun!
