Anna - 'Boots on'
Anna attends a special education needs school. She has been diagnosed with global developmental disorder. The school 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 vocalises some sounds and tunes into music.
Anna sings on her own initiative or in response to songs she has heard. While music is used to elicit responses, we also encourage her to make connections between short phrases or one-word cues. Therefore instructions are simple and repeated in different settings to enable her to understand and participate.
