Curriculum.... what we teach and how we teach it.
A programme for each child
As a child passes through the school and develops, it could be said that s/he is climbing a ladder. Each step represents a skill and the ladder is taking the child towards independence. Because each child is different and has different strengths, the next rung on the ladder will be unique to them. For some the next step will be sitting, walking, or pointing to a chosen toy, and for others it may be cooking lunch or reading the sports page of the newspaper. Therefore, to meet each pupil's needs an individual programme of work is drawn up every term. This programme is usually a number of steps or goals that the pupil will work on and aim to achieve by the end of that term.
