Kilcoona NS is located in Co Galway. A recent addition to the school is the Rainbow Classrooms, which caters for children with ASD. Rainbow Room classes led by Maria, aim to offer an Autism specific learning environment within a mainstream school which facilitates optimum inclusion as part of the school community with access to mainstream activities as appropriate.
The classrooms are physically structured in accordance with the TEACCH Model, with specific areas for individual learning, group work, play and lunch.
The classroom also has a sensory integration room which consists of a variety of equipment to develop fine and gross motor skills, aid sensory processing and provide exercises for both stimulation and preparation for learning and a quiet room that has a calming effect allowing children to interact with objects and the visual aspects of the room.
We have supplied a variety of our products to facilitate movement and learning to the children in the ASD classroom. Most recently we added a Messy Play Table to the outdoor play area.
