The start of the new school year saw the opening of Stepaside Educate Together's first ever ASD unit "Stepping Stones"! It has been a very busy month getting the place up and running from an empty space to a functioning classroom. The unit has a classroom, safe space, an indoor recreational area, sensory room and outdoor soft-play area to cater for the pupils needs. The children have been getting used to their new routines which include everything from doing OT exercises, practicing their fine and gross motor skills, completing work at their independent workstations and one-to-one learning with the teacher. I've included a selection of images to give you a glimpse of what goes on in Stepping Stones!
