Inscape House School
Inscape House School is a non-maintained day special school in Cheadle, Cheshire. We take referrals from all over the UK. Our school can meet the needs of children and young people aged 5 to 19 years with autism spectrum conditions and related social communication difficulties. Inscape is operated by the charity the Together Trust.
Young people within the autism spectrum share a pattern of differences affecting social understanding and social skills, communication and social imagination. We believe that each young person has individual strengths which can be harnessed to support their learning.
We believe that the following, makes all the difference?
• Skills and strategies.
• Personalised approaches.
• Shared Understanding.
• ‘Power with’ approaches.
• Independent and valued citizen.
This response starts with attempting to see the world from their perspective and from there, teaching them skills and strategies to cope with the demands of everyday life.
Skills: Things the person has learned to do independently in any aspect of their lives.
Strategies: Things that help the person to learn and maintain skills.
Crucially, strategies need to be ‘owned’ by the person with autism and should reduce dependency on staff ‘telling’ them what to do.
In doing this, we work in close collaboration with families, appreciating that parents and siblings have a unique understanding of the young person with autism.
Some students may contribute using signs and symbols or photographs and video, others may play an active role in their annual reviews. We also have a very active student council with representatives from every class.
