Our latest Song Signifier Video is now available in the section:
OUR SCHOOL/SUPPORTING PUPILS’ COMMUNICATION
Intensive interaction is an approach for sharing enjoyable and meaningful interactions with children and adults who have complex communication needs. It involves using the learner’s own movements, body language and vocalisation to take turns and share attention with each other. Intensive interaction can be used to develop our learner’s communication skills.
In this video you can hear the song signifier, as well as seeing both an object signifier (the tinsel) and a symbol which can also be used to communicate what’s about to happen.
Merry Christmas from Oaklands Staff. Enjoy your holidays!
Class 4 kicked off the holiday season in style at the start of December with a grand day out.
First they were invited to visit our partners; Judith, Pam, Shirley and Godfrey at John Lewis, where they were invited to choose some lovely Christmas gifts.
After that, they all enjoyed a picnic lunch on the Ratho Seagull Trust Barge and a visit from Santa!
We would like to thank our partners; John Lewis and the Seagull Trust for these wonderful opportunities and wish them all the very best at Christmas time.
