Sunflowers is a resource provision for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Sunflowers provides daily support for children with ASD, as well as providing whole school support for children with Autism with a full time Mainstream placement. The Harbour provides intervention groups for children with Autism which includes Lego Therapy, Cooking sessions, Social Skills Groups and Communication Groups.
In Sunflowers children follow the whole school curriculum focusing on their key stage topic. Children then have differentiated individual targets set for core curriculum areas that link with their interests, are multisensory, visual and link into multiagency targets. Communication, Life Skills, Independence and Sensory Integration are held at the centre of all learning experiences within the Harbour. Children within Sunflowers have daily links with their mainstream classes and attend many sessions with Sunflowers staff support, resources or in some cases independently after working closely with the class teacher to ensure the environment and planning is differentiated to provide ultimate inclusion for all children.
Our curriculum has a learner centred approach where every child is encouraged to love learning and value individual progress. Learners are active in their learning and take part in many hands on multisensory experiences that provide an irresistible invitation to learn and work towards being independent. Independence, life skills, learning skills communication and sensory integration are at the centre of everything Sunflowers does.
