We continue to be amazed at how well the children have settled, well done to all our fab pupils. As restrictions lift nationally, the academy will also look to 'ease' some areas. This will be done in a careful and progamatic way. We will not put pupils and staff at risk. The academy will remain vigilant, and we ask that parents do the same and support us to continue to get things back on 'an even keel'. As the children are settled, we will now be implementing the LA and national guidance on absence and lateness......thank you for your support in getting the children to school and on time, it helps them to settle in the morning and helps us to support their learning.

The Attention Program

The Attention Program 

The Communication Tree story has shown us that the very roots of being able to communicate, lie in being able to pay attention.  

 

This is why The Attention Program is so important!

 

Specialist Speech Therapist Gina Davies,  identified the very key to attracting a child’s attention.  She recognised that what you are showing them has to be irresistible to look at and  interesting to watch.  Gina developed her world  famous program for Autistic people called Attention Autism.  Gina says “Engaging a child is the first critical step to success”.   In fact, the results of her program have been so successful that it is now used with neuro-typical (without Autism) children as well, with great results!                 

 

There is a formula, which is repeated every time, with a clear start and end.  There is a progression from Stage 1—The Bucket through to Stage 4.

 

The Four Stages of

the Attention Intervention

 

Stage 1 : Teaching a child how to focus their attention.                                                                          The Bucket.

 

Stage 2:  Teaching a child how to sustain their attention.                                                                        The Attention Builder.

 

Stage 3:  Teaching the child how to shift their attention to their own individual                                       participation in a group.

 

Stage 4:  Teaching the child how to:

           · Focus and sustain attention in a group to watch a demonstration.

           · Shift attention for an individual task

           · Return to the group, focus and sustain attention for the celebration and review.

 

 

It is always terrific fun!  I love delivering our Attention Sessions.

 

 

 During this home schooling period,    I am going to be  recording some Attention Bucket sessions for our Freemantle pupils.
