Rebound Therapy Messages for March


Messages for March

A question from Jacqui Wheble:
"What cues of reference (objects / songs etc) do you use to show pupils they are going to a Rebound Therapy session?
We have visual prompts, photographs and symbols for higher functioning pupils but now we have a group of pupils with PMLD we wondered if anyone has an effective way of communicating that it is Rebound time for non verbal pupils; many of whom have visual impairments."

If you have any ideas for Jacqui, please post email her on
