Sonas & Bród
In Scoil Choilm CNS we have two ASD classes; Sonas and Bród. In each class there are 6 children, a class teacher and some SNAs. All of the children have a diagnosis of Autism and additional educational needs.
The children follow the mainstream national curriculum and when applicable, the curriculum for children with learning difficulties.
In Sonas and Bród, the children participate in whole class learning, group learning and individual learning. We incorporate LÁMH, PECS, visual schedules and visual supports to enhance the children’s language and communication. The children develop their social skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills (access to bicycles, scooters, wiggle boards and go-kart during yard time), Occupational Therapy activities in the OT room, sensory diet and multi-sensory activities in the multi-sensory room.
Throughout the year the children have the opportunity to participate in a variety of other great activities such as swimming, nature trails, outdoor adventures (visit to the playground and park) and Music and Drama activities (Gymboree).
