AACis Augmentative and Alternative Communication, is different ways of communication to help our pupils. 

AAC can be anything from gestures and eyepointing to communication books and PECS to  switches and iPad apps.

We use many forms of AAC at Oak View:

  • PECS
  • Ipad Apps (eg: proloquo2go)
  • Now and next boards
  • Visual time timetables
  • Work systems
  • Makton signing
  • Eye pointing
  • Objects of reference
  • Interpreting body language and expressions

  • ‘very impressed with the school’s clear sense of purpose in preparing its students for life after school. ’

    ASD report Dec 2017

  • ‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
