Specialist Education for Children with Autism

25.03.2021

People with autism and learning difficulties are just as likely as anyone else to succeed academically, they just might need a different way of teaching. This is why a specialist education school might just be perfect for people in these demographics.

Many years of research have gone into discovering how best to help people with autism learn. From these studies, it is clear that most people with autism learn best through repetition and a more personalised teaching approach.

It is important not to focus too heavily on the subjects that children with autism find challenging. Developing a curriculum that encompasses a mix of difficult subjects and less challenging ones can help reduce the frustration that comes with learning a new skill.

Specialist Education with Care

Moving a person into specialist education is never an easy decision. However, sometimes it is the best step to take.

Specialist education offers the opportunity for individualised learning that has been tailored to meet the specific needs of every student. This means the goals of each student are taken into account, and lessons developed around this.

Many schools, like those offered at Bright Futures Care, detail learning plans for every student. These plans encompass academic learning, play, and therapeutic support.

Each of these aspects helps to give students a well-rounded education with tools that they can use in their everyday life.

Bright Futures Care

At Bright Futures Care we provide specially trained teachers who follow learning plans to help students achieve their academic and social goals. We work alongside Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapists to offer specialist education in a safe and happy environment.

Our schools are also located close to our residential homes, all of which offer the same great standard of care, which means that students who also require residential care accommodation also have this opportunity should they require it.

We believe in offering students a mix of play and work to help them meet their goals, and have seen real results and successes from this method, this has been recognised by being awarded an Outstanding rating by Ofsted.
