Swindon Autism Resource Centre (ARC)
Swindon ARC bases offer an enhanced education programme of social communication and therapeutic learning activity led by an ASC teacher or Senior ASC Worker and experienced ASC support staff for pupils and students between the ages of 4 and 19. These will be pupils/students with a core difficulty around social communication and interaction who may or may not have a diagnosis of autism. They may be on a reduced timetable, undergoing gradual integration/re-integration to school, struggling to function in school and access lessons in school or perhaps at risk of exclusion where school/setting staff and parents are looking to be proactive in managing difficult times. Our aim is to support schools to target some of their SEN focussed delegated funding and/or pupil premium where appropriate, to meet CYP need and positively work towards maintaining a successful learning placement.
