An Enhanced Learning Provision for Primary aged children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Aims of the Provision
Our provision aims to provide a positive, happy learning environment for children with autistic spectrum disorders. We use a range of strategies based on our understanding of autism and the child’s individual needs, interests, strengths and learning styles.
