How do our tutors support children with autism?

We understand that every child on the autism spectrum is different. That’s why our holistic tutoring sessions can be combined to include focused support with communication and language needs, social skills, behavioural needs and fine-motor skills development. All our specialist tutors are highly experienced to teach children with SEN and autism in the ways that best suit their needs.

How can we help your autistic child at home?

Our unique, holistic approach to teaching and tutoring children and young adults who have autism or are on the autism spectrum, who may have a learning disability or not, works so well because it’s completely tailored to the individual’s specific needs and interests.

The benefit is that you, as parents, know your child or young adult is being supported to reach their full potential. You can continue with what you do best – being the fantastic, caring and nurturing parents that you are.

We make sure our teaching sessions are fun, creative, and involve active learning to foster a love of learning in your child or young adult for themselves. Our approach is to teach the student the tools and strategies which they can use for themselves. Our aim is to ensure that our tools and strategies can be used by you, as parents, and by the students themselves so that you and your child are empowered, take ownership and are able to develop a sense of independence.

Elise is one of our specialist qualified autism tutors. She has Qualified Teacher Status both in the UK and Australia, and Master of Education in Special Educational Needs and a Bachelor of Education. She is currently the Inclusion Leader/ SENCo of a school in East London. She explains to parents what they can do at home to support their child who is on the autism spectrum:

“Undoubtedly it is challenging to find out that your child has autism. But it does not mean that your child cannot have every opportunity to accomplish their dreams. Some of history’s most influential people (Charles Darwin, Bill Gates, Temple Grandin, Andy Warhol) had autism. But your child needs a champion, someone who believes in them. And that person is you! You will be the person that helps them understand who they are and what they need”
