Our Targets are taken from B Squared Engagement Steps which takes a holistic view of learners by; focusing on how they learn acknowledging their different abilities and achievements and taking into account of learners preferred sensory and learning channels and their way of processing information; focusing on early communication. cognitive and sensory skills that are the foundation of all future learning.We follow ASDAN Modules including; New Horizons, transition challenge and Towards independence modules.

we have all took part exploring our senses including; touch, sound and smells.during sensory stories and Tacpac sessions in class and in our outside reading area. We individually explored the sensory resources with help from our teachers and we had great fun! Our favourite was the 'Hand Washing' song story, we all enjoyed working together and we responded to the story using musical instruments and precutional sounds to express how we were feelings?.
