Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Autistic Spectrum Disorder

Multi-sensory resources are used for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Visual timetables, break down and simplification of instructions, deal boards (which invite children to work and then chose an activity) and extra adult support if needed are used to aid inclusive practices. There are some interventions at school that support children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders which are:

Socially speaking

A small group intervention in which children explore social skills through activities and games.

Social stories

Individualised stories are prepared for children to teach them about desired behaviours in certain situations.

 

If a child is on the SEN register for  Autistic Spectrum Disorder, they will have individualised targets set out in their My Support Plan. Staff members will then work with your child to help them reach these targets. Their progress will be reviewed regularly. Advice and support may be gained from external agencies for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders such as the Autistic Spectrum Disorder Specialist Teaching Team.
