Our social curriculum is designed to help our young people understand themselves in the context of other people.
Quite often our young people have been and felt isolated. Some have been excluded from previous schools, worked outside of their normal classrooms, been on reduced timetables, not been invited to playdates or school trips, etc.
As a result of their diagnosis, many of our young people find it difficult to understand social situations and the motivations of other people.
Our social curriculum is designed to enable our young people to move out of their ‘safety bubble’ and be able to go to new and exciting places that they’ve not experienced before using the strategies they have learnt. It’s also designed to help them understand others.
“The things we say and do can affect others –
let’s make sure we have a positive effect.”
