Here is Ira on the see saw. He is using loads of language related to what is going on around him - mainly "up" and "down" it is also a great example of the way the children watch out for him. Ben is calmly trying to get him to go around to the other side. After I stopped filming Ira did just that! The other children seem to be ultra aware of his extra needs. They take it as part of daily life.

He has a bit of a crash at the start --- but it doesn't take long for him to get up and going again. cjs

Here is an example of Ira and Alex working together. Watching Ira it is clear he is trying his hardest to follow her instructions. He is desperate to try new things - as long as there is a teacher around to give him a hand!
