Our Approach and Therapy
In order to meet the needs of all of our students across the autism spectrum we use an eclectic mix of established researched approaches and interventions; drawing on best practice.
Interventions and approaches include
After assessment we develop personal individual programs where skills are enhanced or targeted, developing personalised learning goals aimed at improving independence and confidence.
1 to 1 classroom sessions aim at increasing language, social skills, self-help skills, deliberately generalized into practical sessions around the farm and community, ensuring these skills are maintained for further progress to be made possible.
Academic core subjects reading, writing, arithmetic, are taught or enhanced and taken forward to enable us to incrementally teach and build important functional skills in all areas for example money management, and telling the time.
Communication and language
Self-care (such as showering and toileting)
Learning and academic skills
Each of these skills are broken down into small steps, taught, generalised and made functional.
