Adapted Environment

  • The preschool and ABA environments are adapted to reflect the goals of the children’s programmes and to encourage communication at all times.
  • Since our beginning in 2008, CLDP has built up a comprehensive bank of SLT, OT and BA material and this is available to all our pupils.
  • OT equipment use for gross motor, fine motor and sensory work is built into each child’s routine and programme.
  • CLDP has adapted both environments to be highly visual in support of the children with communication challenges.
  • PECS and LAMH are widely used in both environments when required.
  • The staff are very well practiced in implementing Therapeutic Listening programs, brushing programs, deep pressure, oral motor work etc. and will implement these during the school day as appropriate.
