TEST_SubjectLeads_SEN

Last updated 19th March 2012

Well Easter is nearly upon us. I hope you all have a great Easter break and come back refreshed and invigorated! Thanks so much for getting on board with our Sign Language focus during March: you shared some fabulous new resources. We have two focused areas for April: Resources for supporting pupils with ASD (to tie in with Autism Awareness) and Life Skills for older learners. I hope you'll be able to help! More about Bev...
