ASN Newsletter 9 – 03-06-20 – Final (1)
Lots of parents/carers have been asking questions about what is happening with regard to our new school. I am delighted to share the latest newsletter about how Morrison’s construction are going to proceed with this.
We are missing you all so the first thing I want to do is to send a great big virtual hug.
You should have now all received Challenge 3 on the Groupcall messaging service. Thank you to the parents/carers who have already responded …
Hopefully I will be able to share what you have all been up to soon with our staff team
Many of the pupils who attend Haysholm are diagnosed with Autism. The Coronavirus situation is very challenging due to the massive change in routine that it has caused. If you can create some sense of routine and structure and home, this will help tremendously. Use of visuals will help your child know and understand what is expected of them.
There are some excellent resources on our website in the ‘For Parents’ section that you can use to help support understanding and predictability including the school closure kit. If you would like a hard copy of this or any other visuals for home, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can deliver.
Meantime, let’s celebrate the skills, talents, unique abilities that our pupils do have … every single one of them brings a smile to our faces.
Happy World Autism Day

Hi everyone, I hope you are all staying safe.
Here is a great resource shared by Mrs Ward from James McFarlane school that you may wish to explore.
There is so much information that we are trying to collate and put into one location so it is easy for you to find. Please find attached a link from Education Scotland which is aimed at specifically supporting families who have a complex needs child. I hope you find it useful
In the parents section of our website, you will find links to all of the organisations that are listed.

Coronavirus social story
Now that your child has had time to process that they are out of their routine and no longer at school for the moment. Here is a simple social story that you can share with them. Most of our children and young people are familiar with Boardmaker symbols and this is the symbol system that we will be using in our new school.
You can use the story along with the calendars that you were sent home. Marking off the calendar each day with a X is a helpful way of learners being able to identify what day of the week it is.
Remember you can email your child’s teacher for any support or advice during these challenging times.
