We at the Hartford High Road High School pride ourselves on our amazing team of professionals! We have excellent support from Mrs. Mele, our Occupational Therapist and Mrs. Canty our Speech and Language Pathologist.
Mrs. Canty works with our students both in the school setting and out in the community. She took advantage of our trip to Flamig Farm in Simsbury to work with our students in a new and fun setting. Most of our students who attended this field trip have not had a chance to interact with farm animals which made for a perfect speech opportunity.
Our students had a chance to talk about many different aspects of the farm. We discussed naming animals, safety signs, and different sizes and shapes. It also gave our students with Autism an opportunity to appropriately interact with each other, their teachers and the farm staff along with having a fun and interesting opportunity to meet some new animals.
