Total Communication Approach in Action!

The photo below is of one of our Phase 3 pupils who is normally a reluctant writer - everything about it is a challenge from the actual physical skill of writing to thinking what to write and then remembering what he wanted to say!


But not today - he used his VOCCA, gesture, a communication board and the laptop to re-write the story of Owl Babies.


What the picture doesn’t capture is the noises and gestures he made as he wrote what he wanted to say, read it to himself and kept saying yes when he was happy with his composition.  He worked independently, read what he’d written to his Class Teacher and then just beamed!


It was a joy for his Class Team to share his pleasure in his success and to see total communication in action!
