A recent addition to our school is the Rainbow Classrooms, which caters for children with ASD.
Both classes aim to offer an Autism specific learning environment within a mainstream school.
This type of educational setting facilitates optimum inclusion as part of the school community with access to mainstream activities as appropriate.
The classrooms are physically structured in accordance with the TEACCH Model, with specific areas for individual learning, group work, play and lunch.
The classroom also has a sensory integration room which consists of a variety of equipment to develop fine and gross motor skills, aid sensory processing and provide exercises for both stimulation and preparation for learning.
The room has a calming effect allowing children to interact with objects and the visual aspects of the room.
