After a successful pilot project Brent Knoll School became the first provider for children with Autistic Spectrum Conditions to adopt an all-through school approach. Younger students benefit from the DDM intervention, while older students receive AMT, as described on their school website. The outcomes from this approach are the focus of a new research study in partnership with Greenwich University. You can find out more on our Research Page.
From September 2016, Willow Dene School provides the all-through school approach. DDM for younger students and AMT for older students with autism.
