Literacy and communication are essential skills for students to become successful learners.
It is important to us that our students have a voice and are able to communicate in the classrooms. This is why we teach communication skills in all areas of our curriculum.
We have a number of ways of helping students who are unable to communicate through a conventional mode, to develop alternative means of gaining information and expressing themselves.
One example of this is Proloquo2Go which lets students fully participate in daily activities such as morning meetings or group times by being able to say good morning and comment on the day, weather, date etc. Since we started using this tool, our students have greatly improved their communication skills and as a result, their learning.
