Home Learning Ideas

We have put together some ideas for each pathway that might help you to support your child at home during this difficult time.  Many of these activities should be able to be done without needing to buy any resources.  We have tried to make them open and flexible.

These are suggestions but you don't need to do them all! Try something in each section; if your child loves it - repeating will help them master that skill.

Five Currant Buns Counting & Messy Play

This activity gives parents an idea of some of the Attention Autism activities that we do to develop children's attention skills. By using visual and highly motivating activities, children are encouraged to sit at  a slight distance, make eye contact with the objects used and pay attention to what they do or what happens. Sit and watch together as Five Currant Buns get splatted!
