Teaching and learning tools
As a specialist school providing a fully individualised curriculum for pupils with specific learning needs we use a wide range of evidence based tools to support learning and development.
Our learning goals and assessment systems are always built toward the specific needs of our pupils. We employ the same approach towards teaching and learning tools. This means that each pupil is taught skills that they need as an individual using learning tools that benefit them as individuals.
We have tried to provide a short description of many of our tools below. Please note however that we will use a tools beyond those described and that the descriptions provide only a brief overview. If you are interested in learning more please speak to your class lead or BCBA.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
ABA is not so much a learning tool as a science from which many of our learning tools have been developed. Behaviour Analysis is the science of understanding behaviour. Applied behaviour analysis is the application of those scientific principles with the intention of improving the lives of those who ABA professionals are supporting. ABA has been around for a long time and has been applied differently at different times and in different locations.
If you would like to know more about how we apply these principles you can ask our staff team for more information.
