This year...

We are in the process of developing the ARC wellbeing project; with residential accommodation for young people with ASC, who are transitioning to independence and adulthood, as they leave compulsory education or care.  We hope to help in providing suitable accommodation, with support, in order to give the young person experience living in and maintaining their first rented home.  

We are well in to the new academic year and our new learners are settling in and making progress in their chosen subjects.

Our mainstream schools have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen and all staff have been treated to some recreations from Richard's travels to Portugal.

Just a couple more weeks before everyone will earn a well deserved break.

Meeting the needs of Learners with Autistic Spectrum Conditions in the Mainstream Classroom. 

There are 4 Learning outcomes, one tackled each week, to produce a portfolio of work to demonstrate knowledge and understanding about the effects of autism and how to best support young learners who are on the spectrum.

Well done to all those who completed their Courses and attained Level 1 qualificiations. 

All of the staff at ARC completed the course and found it informative and beneficial in working with young people on the Spectrum.

For details of the next course, please check back here or email us for more info. 

Last Word ...

"The direction in which education starts a man [or woman], will determine his [or her] future life."  Plato, The Republic.

Therefore a good start, appropriate to the needs and interests of a learner will ensure a good outcome: get a good start!
