The focus is on the specialist ASD-specific provision of structured teaching and care to develop and consolidate personal, self-help and independence skills, with opportunities for leisure and the development of social and communication skills. Individual programmes and targets are monitored via the Placement Plan, which is shared with parents and carers and agencies involved in the care of the child.
Continuity between home and school, day and evening is achieved through close communication between parents, carers, teachers and care staff
