Welcome to Jaguar Class

 

Jaguar Class is a class for children who have a diagnosis of Autism  and are aged between 6 years and 9 years old.

Communication Skills

The children will be encouraged to develop their communication skills through the use of sign, symbols, Picture Exchange Communication System and speech throughout the year.

Social Skills

The children will take part in various activities in the community such as visiting local shops and cafes, parks. We also swim each week at Millhouse swimming pool.

Learning

Our topic this term is Entertainment.

Children take part in class activities, one to one work with an adult in class and then complete their workbox activity following the TEACCH approach to consolidate their skills and learning.

Each child follows a personalised  path  building on their skills and learning new skills through small steps and repetition.
