Language and Communication Resource 

The Language and Communication Resource Bannerman Autism Unit caters for pupils whose difficulties lie on the Autism Spectrum. All pupils have a diagnosis of Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. 

The Unit has been an integral part of Bannerman High Since August 2000. 

At present the Unit has places for up to 12 pupils. Pupils have access to mainstream classes according to their individual needs and staff from the Unit support pupils in classes, if required. 

Within the Unit, lessons to develop social skills and social understanding are an important part of most pupils’ timetables. The Unit also provides pupils with practice in language and communication skills and Lifeskills, as well as providing opportunities for consolidation ofclasswork.
