Welcome to Silver 1 class page! Silver 1 is a specialist provision for children with, or with traits of, Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are a class of seven children between the ages of 4 - 8. We work on our communication skills, behaviour for learning skills, independence skills and core skills using the VB-MAPP assessment. Our TAs use an Applied Behaviour Analysis approach to teaching. We work 1:1, in small groups and in whole class settings.



Christmas celebrations have begun!!!! 

Outdoor Learning


Silver 1 love visiting Mrs Cox in the Forest Schools area! There are lots of opportunities to work on our social skills and communication skills, and we enjoy exploring all of the different things we find out there. We also love an opportunity to get very, very messy!




Communication is so important to Silver 1 and we work very hard on our targets. Some of use are able to use vocals to talk and we are working on expanding our vocabulary and  using two word phrases to talk. Others of us are working on using symbols to communicate.
