Inclusive Learning

Communication and Personal Development

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Enterprise and Communication aims to support young people with Autism while preparing them for the transition into adulthood with the use of proactive, holistic, flexible and evidence based approaches. We provide young people with a low level arousal and very structured environment that supports the development of their mind and body.

The curriculum is designed for young people to form an understanding of the world around them. Including how to relate to others, communicate, be creative and manage their anxieties.
