Special Education Needs
The Good Schools Guide writes: The Percy Hedley Foundation was established in 1953 as a small charitable school for children with cerebral palsy to promote the rights, needs and aspirations of disabled people through specialist, quality services. The school provides day end five-day boarding with respite and independence training for pupils on a full or part-time basis. Percy Hedley School specialises in working with three distinct groups of children. For those with cerebral palsy a programme based on Conductive Education as practised at the Peto Institute in Budapest is followed. Specialist teachers and therapists provide an integrated approach to working with children who have speech, language and communication difficulties and complex difficulties including dyspraxia, dyslexia and ADHD. The third group supported ny the school are those children on the autistic spectrum who show the potential to access a group approach with support.
