Sutton, London -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/28/2018 -- Eagle House Group, one of the most reputable special needs schools in London, undertakes a unique approach to therapy which is designed specifically for learners with autism. Led by clinical psychologist Dr. Jenny Alvarez, they have a Curriculum Access Team which has specialises in providing speech and language therapy, clinical and assistant psychology, occupational therapy, music therapy, and drama therapy. In speech and language therapy, the therapists work individually with each learner to achieve a 'total communication approach' in every classroom.

Their dedicated occupational therapists work with students in all their activities and support them to function effectively during their day-to-day activities. In the psychology department, detailed assessment of the cognition and emotions of each of the children is done by a team of expert psychologists in order to work on any areas of weakness that require greater support. Furthermore, education is provided in an interactive way through music and drama therapies to help develop a creative acumen among the autistic children in a way that is relatable to their needs.

Eagle House Group is one of the most renowned independent special schools in Surrey and has a strong name across the UK, with a high demand for places. They have a dedicated team of specialists and teachers who work tirelessly to support the children who suffer from Asperger Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other social and communication difficulties. They also offer training programmes and workshops for parents and local authorities, which makes them one of the best autism schools in the UK.

Elaborating about their therapeutic activities, a representative of Eagle House Group stated, "We understand that every learner is different so in order to support their individual needs appropriately, we complete a 6-week comprehensive baseline assessment to include the 'Underlying Characteristics of Autism'. Every learner works regularly in the classroom with various members of the CA Team, who support teaching staff in providing the appropriate equipment, environment, and provision for each learner. A learner will also have individual sessions with a therapist if this has been stipulated in their statement or education, health, and care plan."
