Phonics & Reading

We have created our curriculum to allow children of all communication levels access to the National Curriculum. Each subject has teaching ideas for Social Partners, Language Partners and Conversational partners to support children in achieving the learning objectives.

Classrooms and learning activities are set up according to the TEACCH philosophy, building independence and understanding.



We use Picture Exchange Communication system to support early language acquisition and to support initiating and directing communication



Colourful Semantics

We use Colourful Semantics to develop an understanding of word meanings, and to develop children’s understanding of the grammatical structure of spoken and written language.
