At Aegir, we communicate in lots of different ways to support our students’ communication and language development. We use signs, symbols and real objects where necessary to develop students’ vocabulary, understanding and ultimately achieve their learning goals. Our communication is supported by:

  • Repetition
  • Oral rehearsal
  • Reduced language
  • Good models of speaking and listening
  • Giving students time to process and talk
  • Explanations of new and unfamiliar words 

We use the following communication strategies with our students: 

Objects of reference

Music/song cues

Intensive Interaction

Visual Symbols


Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)

Play Interaction
