Ipad Apps for Learners with Complex Additional support Needs

Ipad Apps for Complex Communication Support Needs: Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)



During this time we realize that some parents may want more resources to help keep their child busy, active and learning, so we have compiled a list of handy, free online activities and materials to use at home.

Please check out our Yoga Inforamtion for parents/carers. Below is a video that was out together by One of our lovely teachers and our wonderful Music Therapist, Enjoy 🙂

Another great resource for you and one that is a favourite with a vast majority of pupils here at Ysgol Crug Glas, is Music and Movement .

This session has been put together by One of our Teachers with the help of her Son, to provide you with an example. It is a lovely bonding session for adults/child. For those pupils who use wheelchairs, it provides an opportunity for movement. This session can last about 25 minutes and can be repeated weekly or daily if you wish. We hope you enjoy 🙂
