To help your child understand that they are going to start school or return after the holidays, and to help prepare them, please let them see you packing their school bag, and laying out their school uniform.
If your child understands and uses objects to communicate, give them their school jumper and school bag to touch and see.
If your child understands photos – show them the photo of school.
If your child understands symbols – show them the symbol for school.
If it is hard for you to show your child the photo/symbol on your phone/tablet, then please call and leave a message for Speech and Language Therapy on 0131 315 8106 – we can send out a paper one.
The SignAlong sign for school is…
(flat hand – fingers and thumb together – in front of chin – make a wee circle)
