SCERTS stands for ‘Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, Transactional Support’.

It is primarily a framework and educational approach for students with ASD. After staff training and consultation with Emily Rubin (the SCERTS author and principle trainer) it may also be used for students with SLD.

SCERTS provides guidelines for an individual to become and confident communicator able to advocate for their needs and actively engage in their environment in meaningful ways.

Students on the SCERTS pathway are our more complex learners and require very high levels of support from the staff working with them.

From September 2022 Highfield will have one SCERTS specific class.

For students on the SCERTS pathway it is more likely that specialist teachers will come to their known environment to introduce appropriate learning. All areas of school are available for students to access when appropriate for the individual.

That’s great and all, and we commend you for pushing through with it. Unfortunately we no longer offer support for IE; it hasn’t received a major update since 2015 and Microsoft are dropping support for it later in the year.
