At Rowan Gate we are committed to building a learning community where all children are able to participate fully using their preferred mode of communication. 

Communication is the basis of all learning; it is a two-way process and without communication there can be no education. The ability to communicate is fundamental to a basic quality of life. 

Many children at Rowan Gate School experience communication difficulties, therefore we strive to provide a total communication environment. 

This is a combination of lots of different ways of communicating - it is not just about speech. 

We actively promote and use a range of strategies and tools to support our pupils to communicate as effectively as possible, in as many situations as possible, including gesture, eye pointing, signing, using symbols system - objects of reference, TOBIS, PECS, communication books; special keyboards, AAC apps on Ipads, communication devices.

The tools are used in a combination to reinforce each other and strengthen meaning for a child.
