Hope House School is committed to providing a holistic approach to nurture, learning and development for children and young people with an ASD.
For some children and young people there is an element of sensory over-, or under-, stimulation that can impact on daily life. Pupils are regularly assessed using our Autism Progress software which helps to guide the development of support strategies and therapies. It plots the impact that a child’s autism has on his or her functioning and provides strategies for reducing the negative effects.
Using autism descriptors as a base, it consists of a set of progressive levels in the following areas:
- flexibility of thought
- social interaction
- emotional regulation
- sensory and perceptual motor
Once a child has been assessed, we can work with the therapy team to put together a unique package to support the child’s individual needs as part of their education.

- Occupational Therapy (Sensory Integration)
