Autism

We support a range of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder across the school. Some children require a 1:1 Learning support assistant and some children need intervention for social skills and support to manage anxiety.

School staff receive training and support from Hertfordshire County council’s Communication and Autism Team. We also work closely with occupational therapists and speech and language therapy services.

We use a range of strategies including:

Now and next boards, a visual timetable, widget symbols, a personal workstation / resource box, sensory box, sensory assessment, social skills groups, social stories and comic strip conversations.

We use a child’s special interests to help motivate and engage them in learning.
