At Ellern Mede School we understand that children and young people suffering from an eating disorder, other co-morbidities, or any other form of special educational need may experience challenges in mainstream learning environments. For example:
Our Special Educational Needs consultants can work with the family, the young person and their usual place of education to assess ways to make learning more effective. We can review the existing approach and help plan and implement new teaching aids and methods. We make it possible for teaching to be individualised.
How we do this involves observation, information gathering and meetings with families and professionals.
We can provide help to arrange bespoke examination settings.
Speak to us about support packages for your child’s complex needs. We can offer an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) Needs Assessment and Annual Reviews. A valuable aspect for the child of having an EHCP is that this plan will remain in place as long as it is considered to be needed until the young person turns 25.
If your child will benefit from a gentler and more individually focused approach to therapeutic education, talk to us. Ellern Mede School has the benefit of not only expert teaching but a full multidisciplinary team of mental health clinicians to work with.
Funding applications are made to the relevant local authority. Self-pay packages can also be arranged.
