Education plans designed for children with autism

Alongside an academic curriculum, we offer our students a calm, consistent, eclectic approach to meet their individual needs. We pride ourselves on flexibility within structure and work hard on building a non-aversive, positive approach. Our students come to us from other schools and centres which cannot fully meet their needs due to their complex difficulties and challenging behaviours. Their academic level and communication skills will vary, spanning a wide range.


At Hill House we provide a breadth of opportunities through a rich and varied learning environment allowing each student to not only be successful learners but to develop a love of learning by providing opportunities to acquire, develop, practise, apply and extend their skills in a range of contexts across the curriculum. We also support our students to become confident, independent learners that are encouraged to encounter, engage and explore.
