At The Walnuts we recognise that each student is a unique individual; however, the underlying difficulty for every Walnuts student lies in the area of communication.  We therefore provide an environment where spoken language is clear and precise and, where appropriate, augmentative or alternative strategies are used to enable non-verbal learners to understand the and communicate successfully, enabling them to respond and interact to their full capacity. These might include the use of objects of reference, representational objects, photographs, symbols or written words according to the individual needs of the child. 

We aim to create opportunities to elicit spontaneous communication throughout the school day and constantly value our learners’ efforts, promoting self-esteem and confidence through specific praise.
