Puffin class currently has 8 children who are Year 1 and Year 2, and are supported by a teacher and six LSAs. The children follow an individual personalised learning plan with targets set and lessons planned in conjunction with the speech and language therapist and occupational therapist.
All the children in the class have a diagnosis of ASK as well as significant learning difficulties. All the children have sensory processing difficulties and the curriculum is planned and delivered through a holistic approach in order to meet these needs as a pre-requisite to learning.
Learning objectives are met through a mixture of individual, small group and whole class sessions. Examples of sessions include communication groups, art, sensory stories, sensabout, music and a variety of gross motor and fine motor sessions.
