Through our Outreach Service, we promote collaboration between mainstream and special school colleagues as well as other education providers to enable the sharing of expertise and a flexible response to the needs of all children and young people.
We support mainstream colleagues with specialist training opportunities wherever appropriate.
We offer advice and support related to the following areas:
- Observations of individual pupils in their school setting and identification of positive working strategies
- In-reach visits to Ellen Tinkham to observe practice, resources etc.
- Specific approaches, including those for pupils with ASD
- Language and communication difficulties – implementing a Total Communication approach including Makaton
- Collaborative work on curriculum access and differentiation
- Positive behaviour management
