Oak View are using The Attention Autism Programme for pupils throughout the school. Attention Autism has been designed to help parents and professionals give their child with autism and social communication difficulties an irresistible invitation to learn using fantastic activities and having a really good time whilst doing so.
Attention Autism originates from the idea that successful communication is dynamic, engaging and joyful. We learn best when we work with enthusiasm, motivation and creativity. We remember good times and shared experiences.
The Attention Autism approach provides the child with an experience worth communicating about. We need to make our interactions irresistible!
At Oak View, Claire Moore is a licensed Advanced Practitioner who trains and guides staff in delivering the programme, ensuring that we have a high quality session.
Why do we use Attention Autism at Oak View School?
The programme develops pupils' joint attention, so we can plant ideas to communicate about something that we both have shared and understood.
Attention autism provides opportunities for communication, it works on eye contact, gesture, facial expression, proximity, body language and shared experiences.
Attention Autism builds on the strengths of children who have excellent visual skills, a memory for motivating activities and lots of energy.

‘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.’
