Notes

All of our students will have learning needs and mostly hold an EHC plan (they will need this for Local Authority funding). Students have a variety of learning disabilities which include: Autism (about 1/3 in average of our students are on the autistic spectrum), Prader-Willi Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, PTSD, Complex PTSD, Downs Syndrome, Developmental Delay, Attachment Disorder, Speech and Language Difficulties, Selective Mutism, Epilepsy, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Anxiety, Sensory Processing Disorders. However, all our students are individuals, what brings them together is their interest in horses.
