Learning support for autistic students

Educating children with Asperger should focus on their specific potential, not their deficits or specific symptoms.

School can be a very stressful experience for students with Asperger.

Having a learning support professional in school, dedicated solely to the needs of the student, can have a profound positive impact. With the right level of personalised support, strategies can be developed to:

  • manage emotions
  • control behaviour
  • lower anxiety
  • improve communication skills
  • deal with school environment and daily routine

Individual support also develops self-confidence and motivation, enabling students to improve school performance and general academic success.

As a qualified psychologist and experienced learning support professional, I assist students on the Autism spectrum from Marbella to Sotogrande on the Costa del Sol. I can work inside or outside the classroom to identify personal skills and areas of development. My support is targeted to the student’s specific needs, whether emotional, behavioural, social and/or academic.
