HOW WE COMMUNICATE
Please take a look at all of the different ways we communicate with our children and the ways in which we teach them to communicate with us.
We use basic makaton to support our spoken language and strengthen our children's understanding.
We have a visual class timetable, but all of our children also use either their own visual schedule with symbols or objects to show them where they are going throughout their day.
Some children also have their own communication books so they are able to request things that they need or want.
Finally, our children all use a "Now and Next" board when they are working, with visual symbols. We allow the children to make a choice so that they know once all of their hard work is complete, they get to choose a fun activity. (Now working/Next choosing.) This helps to motivate our children and reduce anxiety.
