I have just started work at a school for pupils with ASD. The children are aged 8-9 and are mainly 1C in maths and literacy. I would like to know how you organise your inputs. The children have had an unsettled time at school and are not used to sitting for long periods of time. I have been told that they are quite used to talking over the teacher while they are teaching. I have noticed that they can sit for about ten minutes, but find it hard to fit in my activity in the main input and then model what they need to do at the table within this time. I was wondering how other teachers organise their inputs? Do you end up having to model at the table instead of during the input? Or should I just reduce the amount of time spent on the main activity? How long are the children on the carpet for?
