Earlier this year, ASDAN commissioned SEND expert Richard Aird OBE to undertake the review with the aim of ensuring our provision is fit for purpose and future-proofed.
Richard has 30 years’ experience as headteacher of four special schools and has provided advice to the Department for Education (DfE), most notably as a member of the Rochford Review (2016) and the Review of Teachers’ Standards (2011).
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.
On Tuesday 5th June 2018, at the Houses of Parliament, Auditory Verbal UK launched new research which demonstrated the effectiveness of Auditory Verbal therapy. The paper had a particular focus on deaf children with additional needs. Of the children who had needs in addition to their hearing loss, half achieved age-appropriate language. On average, the children with, and those without additional needs, both doubled their rate of language development.
