We are a very happy class of 7 pupils with the diagnosis of Autism.
The teacher of the class is Hetty Sagers and the TAs are Charlotte, Charlie and Pam. 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 learning 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 the Grid player, 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, Soft Play and enjoy visiting the big playground.
Most of all, however, we like to keep busy and have fun!
