Teacch in the Junior Phase
The Teacch class begins at 11:00 each day and the lesson lasts 0:45 minutes to an hour. Within this time frame, each learner has between two and three tasks in front of them to complete. These tasks are set at each individual's potential.
Teacch has positively affected our Juniors’ on a behavioural and social level in that our children have visual work task charts, visual behaviour charts for positive reinforcement. Because everything is so graphic, it’s appealing to the kids on their level of understanding. The response to the lesson generates positive behaviour because they are understanding what you’re asking due to the graphic representation.
Teacch was implemented at the beginning of the first term. Our learners have successfully grasped their individual tasks and are moving swiftly along to their next tasks.
The Teacch curriculum is introduced at the foundation phase as we would like to build each learner up to their full potential by the time they leave Unity College.
We are certain that with the guidance of Teacch and the dedicated staff’s commitment, our learners will be able to be more independent than had we not have implemented it as early on as their starter years.
