CHOICES AND KNOWLEDGE

  • No outsiders books

  • Social stories

  • Making appropriate choices

 
  • Class teachers will baseline pupils to ensure the curriculum (levels) is differentiated to meet the needs of every pupil. 
  • Pupils are assessed against a bespoke assessment package, designed to meet the needs of the programme.
  • This has been incorporated into the existing system for recording pupil progress, Evidence for Learning.
  • School systems and strategies which are part of the total communication approach are used to support teaching. 
  • As a result this supports teaching across the curriculum and strategies learned and developed are applied to the teaching of other subjects, such as Maths and English.
