Communication Pathway

Social Communication


Rowan, Elm, Fern, Elder; develops a personalised curriculum using the SCERTS model framework. Functional and social Communication is a key area for development for this group of learners as the aspirational goal for all pupils is to become confident and competent communicators so that they are able to actively participate in social activities. Pupils who are able to communicate effectively have access to increased opportunities for play and learning and are able to participate more fully in enjoyable social relationships. In SCERTS, social communication is addressed in two areas; Joint Attention and Symbol Use. As individuals progress through this pathway they will develop from social partners to early language partners to language partners within an informal play-based learning to a semi-formal curriculum.
