We use a range of approaches with the children including, SCERTS, PECS, Colourful Semantics, Attention Autism and TEEACH. Our team work closely with parents, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and other professionals to develop personalised programmes for our children.
As well as specialist support in The Village, children are linked to a mainstream class, where they have opportunities to learn alongside their peers. Inclusion is an important aspect of The Village and ensuring children access learning opportunities with their mainstream peers is a priority. These sessions either take place:
- in their link class, where our children join the whole class session.
- as reverse inclusion, where the children’s peers join an activity within the ARP.
This will depend on their independence skills and academic abilities. Wherever possible the children will join their class for special activities, trips and projects.
