For the past two years, we have self-funded and ran our own ASD inclusion HUB. This is open during the afternoon, whereby children (either diagnosed, on the pathway to diagnosis, or on the school ‘radar’) are taught in an environment which focuses on their social, emotional and communication needs.
We often have pupils who have emotional needs, and typically have anxiety problems. Often they cannot cope with a full week in school, and we offer the opportunity to be in school for at least three days; with the other two days being optional.
Within our time out area is a comfy chair and sensory timer. Identified students are issued with a pass that enables to access this time out zone. They set the sensory timer to 10 minutes and complete the ‘emotic’ sheet before returning to their lesson.
