I'm Anna and I'm learning English as an additional language (EAL). I really struggle with understanding verbal instructions in English.
I'm Dan and I have autism. I like doing activities on my own and dislike loud noises.
I'm Chloe and I have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I'm very chatty, active and have trouble focusing for long periods of time.
Please speak slowly and clearly when giving instructions.
Please keep the classroom quiet for me to focus and give me my own space to complete activities.
Please don't make me sit for too long and use short, verbal instructions.
We are 20 students (11 females and 9 males) who make up the remainder of the year 1 class at an inner-city co-educational public primary school. We enjoy coming to school and love the different learning experience that-hands on learning activities provide. School can be busy, unsettling and even stressful at times due to our high turn-over rate of staff and students and traffic accidents frequently affecting our travel arrangements to and from school.
