Prior’s Court uses the TEACCH system of structured teaching with structure in the organisation of the day and the layout of all areas including classrooms, work and living spaces.

Schedules, timetabling the day and individual work/activity systems outline what is expected; routines provide a predictable sequence of events; the visual organisation of materials helps define and make clear expectations. This structured approach is personalised to support each individual’s needs and enhance their development.

Studies have demonstrated that this provides one of the most positive outcomes for individuals with autism, helping them to understand the events in their day, reduce anxieties, aid learning and facilitate independence.
