Our students benefit from decades of experience and research into how best to support people on the autism spectrum. Everything we do is evidence-informed and aims to give students the best opportunities possible throughout their lives.

We follow the NSW curriculum and we carefully adapt learning and development based on each individual student's strengths and interests. Every student therefore has a positive experience that is personalised for them. We work with a student’s special interest areas to be able to motivate them to achieve their personal best.

    Transition Approach

    Aspect regards transition as a necessary part of every student’s educational journey.
