Attention Autism

Attention Autism is an intervention designed by Gina Davies, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist. It aims to develop natural and spontaneous communication through the use of visual and highly motivating activities. The primary objective is giving pupils a fun and irresistible invitation to learn.


  1. To engage attention
  2. To improve joint attention
  3. To develop shared enjoyment in group activities
  4. To increase attention in adult led activities
  5. To encourage spontaneous interaction in a natural group setting
  6. To increase non-verbal and verbal communication through commenting
  7. To build a wealth and depth of vocabulary
  8. To have fun!

Attention Autism is used across our St. Bosco Koon Ying classes in order to engage students in their learning and foster a sense of enjoyment through communication and engagement. Our class teachers work in conjunction with our Speech and Language Therapist on site to deliver this to our students.
