ASD Statement

 

ASD-triad

Supporting pupils on the autism spectrum.

We use a range of multi-sensory teaching and learning styles.

We use a number of common fundamental principles that make for successful teaching of pupils on the autism spectrum.

 

These include:

  • Intensive, structured and purposeful teaching.
  • Clear, unambiguous and explicit instructions and teaching strategies.
  • Use of repetition to consolidate.
  • Re-teaching in different contexts and in different ways, not assuming that the pupil has understood because they have repeated or demonstrated something.
  • Using a communicative form that the pupil understands and can use to convey ideas to others i.e.: visual, audio or kinaesthetic learning, giving students the opportunity for learning to be achieved through experience of the world.
  • Giving opportunities for learning with a personal meaning that is interesting and motivating.
  • A high level of adult support and tuition.
