Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and how they experience the world around them. Autism is described as a spectrum condition; this means that whilst some people with autism, including Asperger's Syndrome, share certain characteristics they will be highly individual in their needs. This Spectrum means that teaching of children affected by autism requires a high degree of flexibility and responsiveness to ensure individual needs are met in an appropriate manner.
Beaconside Primary and Nursery School hosts a Mainstream Autism Base (MAB) which is currently funded for 8 places. The MAB was established to provide support to children with disorders on the Autism spectrum.
Admission to the Mainstream Autism Base at Beaconside is controlled by the Local Authority not the school and all queries regarding provision need to be directed to Worcestershire SEN Services.
