Anna has a global developmental disorder. The special school she attends receives ongoing and reviewable resourcing schemes (ORRS) funding to enable close supervision as Anna has pica behaviour and tends to mouth or swallow things.
Anna vocalizes some sounds and tunes into music. Her wide repertoire of songs is vocalised with the vowel “a”. Anna sings on her own initiative or in response to songs she has heard. Songs are simple and repeated in different settings to enable her to understand, participate, and communicate her needs.
