Our Approach

We offer a specialist curriculum that recognises young people diagnosed on the autistic spectrum as an individual, and we work to help them realise their full potential. Through research with health and educational specialists, employers and parents, we have developed teaching and learning methods to help these young people with learning difficulties such as autism, Asperger’s and dyslexia - strategies for life and learning, which in the long term will give them the opportunities and skills for successful employment.

Our schools are friendly, supportive environments where attendance is high and mutual respect thrives addressing the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of every young person in school.

We achieve this through the following learning methods:

  • Whole Health Learning - focuses on a healthy eating, exercise, massage and relaxation helping students develop strategies for managing times of increased anxiety.
  • Connected Learning - a learning approach that helps students to make sense of their experiences and develop strategies for success in all areas of their life.
  • Real World Learning - this area of the specialist curriculum focuses on employability, providing our young people with strategies to get a job and sustain work. 
  • World Knowledge - student horizons are broadened with an awareness of the world around them.
  • Vocational Skills and Qualifications - students learn practical working skills for employment, often supported by nationally recognised qualifications.
From our point of view, we’re just really pleased that he’s happy. He used to come home miserable three quarters of the time; now he comes home happy three quarters of the time.
