In my role at Example Primary School, I worked with a student in grade 1 with autism, who also had limited communication skills. This student also had significant anxiety. At the beginning of the school term, the student was so anxious that he often refused to attend school at all. I needed to support the student to engage with his lessons. I implemented support as outlined within his Individual Education Plan to assist him to feel comfortable. For example, I took time to build rapport with the student, focusing on his interests (trains), offering train toys and pictures. I also utilised PECS Communication books and activity schedules to help the student understand what to expect each day. I laminated communication cards and photocopied worksheets, to free the teacher up and enable them more time to teach. I utilised sensory items such as sensory chews, a sand bucket etc. to reduce the child’s anxiety in the classroom. I worked with his classroom teacher to understand the learning goals of each lesson and to prepare relevant resources. I then assisted to work 1:1 with the student to reiterate simplified learning concepts. By the end of the term, the student was consistently attending school, and was able to participate in the classroom program.
