ASC Information

Information

Visual timetables are used to help reduce anxiety, promote routine and help a child with transition of activities. They can be used left-right or up-down. We use the up-down method in school. Ideally the visual timetable should be at the child's height, the routines would be talked through with the child and each activity can be removed from the timetable after it has happened, perhaps placed in a 'finished' box. You can view, or download to print, an example here.

Support for young people who have a sibling with an additional need or disability
There is an update for parent/carers from the parental/carer survey led by the Plymouth Child Development Centre (CDC) which you can view here.

An excellent web site for information and more resources is www.resourcesforinclusion.co.uk or alternatively contact Mrs Sanders or Mrs Bird for more information.

National Autistic Society and M & S
Many children with Autistic Spectrum Condition experience sensory difficulties and often find wearing certain clothes difficult, i.e. socks and various pieces of school uniform. Marks and Spencer have linked with the National Autistic Society to design clothing for children and young people and they have produced a range called 'Easy Dressing School Uniform'.
In addition to this the Sock Shop have created a range of socks called Kids' Smooth Toe Seams.

The ASC team holds informal coffee meetings for parents/carers of children with ASC attending the school. The meetings are held in the 'West Wing' between 2.15 and 3.15 on the following dates:

 Dates for the 2017/18 to follow soon

Come along for an opportunity to liaise with the Communication Interaction Team, EVPS SENCo, EVPS FSA (Family Support Advisor) and ASC Team, for advice/help using visuals, different strategies and problem sharing. Coffee and biscuits provided.
