Fosse Way House is a residential provision that caters for up to 11 students aged 11-19 with Autistic Spectrum disorders. Students stay each week from Monday to Friday, returning home every weekend and holiday. The aim of the residential provision is to provide a 24 hour curriculum that enables students to:
- Develop social and communication skills within a residential environment.
- Develop independence skills e.g. personal care.
- Develop use of leisure time.
Students are provided with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities e.g. youth club, sports games, arts and crafts as well as being given the opportunity to develop independence skills through activities such as shopping and preparing their own meals. Students are provided with daily opportunities to make their own decisions, both for themselves and for the group. Residential students are able to make use of a number of facilities after school. These include the swimming pool, art and food technology rooms and the sensory room. Off-site activities include country walks, youth club, cinema and theatre visits as well as bowling and trampolining. All activities are selected in order to provide a stimulating, enriching and active experience for the student.
