Autistic spectrum conditions (ASC)

We provide specialist teaching services to support the needs of children and young people with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC).




What is specialist teaching of autistic spectrum conditions?

Specialist teaching of ASC supports the academic and personal development of children and young people with ASC through identifying and addressing needs. ASC is a spectrum, meaning that the needs of individuals are also on a spectrum and will not be identical. Our specialist ASC teachers have years of experience in order to accurately identify and address an individual's needs across the four areas mentioned in the SEND code of practice (2015). Through working with children and young people we can maximise their potential to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

[...] speech, language and communication needs can also be a feature of a number of other areas of SEN, and children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder may have needs across all areas.

Children and young people with ASD, including Asperger's Syndrome and Autism, are likely to have particular difficulties with social interaction. They may also experience difficulties with language, communication and imagination, which can impact on how they relate to others.
