Details: Key Word Sign (KWS) is the combination of manual signs and natural gesture, used to support communication. It is designed for use with children and adults who have communication difficulties. Each word (concept) is matched to a hand sign. Key word signing uses Auslan signs. Auslan is the native language of the Australian Deaf community (Australian Sign Language)
Details Cued Articulation is a system which enhances literacy skills by fostering an understanding of the sound structure of the language. It is a set of hand cues for teaching the individual sounds in a word. The hand movements are logical – each hand movement represents one sound and the cue gives clues as to how and where the sound is produced. Colour Coding is also used for the written letters which represent these sounds.
Details Rhythmic Movement Therapy (RMT) mimics in many ways the developmental movements that babies and infants naturally and automatically make as they grow. This therapy is completed to target the maturation of primitive reflexes, which may result in delayed brain and motor development if retained longer than what is age appropriate. RMT is structured with simple passive and active exercises to support all individuals in all different stages of life and ability.
Details Westmead Feelings Program is an evidence-based clinical intervention package developed by The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, designed specifically to teach emotional and social skills to children with autism spectrum disorder and mild intellectual disability.
