Hillside Specialist School And College (LCC Maintained Special School)


Hillside Specialist School is a Specialist School for Communication and Interaction in Lancashire for students aged three to nineteen years with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Pupils take part in a wide ranging personalised curriculum. At Hillside Specialist School we have built an eclectic approach to pupils learning, taking into account current theories and methods of teaching. All of our pupils display significant difficulties within the ‘Triad of Impairment’ that is at the heart of the autism. A child’s difficulties in language and communication, social relationships, and rigid patterns of behaviour/thought/interests form major barriers to learning. Our role is to help our pupils to come to terms with, and overcome, these difficulties.
