In addition to our other specialists, we also teach the children Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and Drama every week for an hour. We combine our Auslan sessions with Drama as a great way to develop the childrens' confidence in interacting with others and allow them to explore their emotions.
Auslan not only has enormous benefits for the childrens' social and emotional skills, it also improves their understanding of the world.
As an added bonus, it's great for their spelling! We use 'finger spelling' as a hands-on way to help the kids remember how to spell words.
