Mars class is a Complex needs ASD class for year 2 and 3 children. Special focus is given to promoting independence, confidence and communication skills. Mars class uses the TEACCH approach to develop independence through the use of clearly marked areas and individual schedules. With the support of regular Speech therapy support we utilise the use of Makaton, PECS and symbols to enable frequent opportunities to communicate over the course of the school day.
Children are regularly seen by our Occupational therapist and a specific programme is delivered to the children. Please click below to read our newsletter;
