Homeschooling children with neurodiverse needs

At Wolsey Hall Oxford all students are guided and supported to achieve their full academic potential, including those with additional neurodiverse needs. Our flexible courses place emphasis on the child studying at their own pace, in their own time and in their home environment where they feel comfortable to study.

Our Learning Support Team utilises strategies and support systems built on many years experience of working with children with neurodiverse needs across all age groups. Our resources and in-depth knowledge can remove barriers to learning as we understand how differently children can learn. It’s a true partnership as we work directly with families as they begin to embark on homeschooling.

Homeschooling and neurodiversity Open Event

Join us on Wednesday 1st May at 10am (UK time) for an Open Event specifically focused on students with neurodiverse needs.

The live presentation facilitated by Deja Pygott, our Learning Support and Wellbeing Manager, covers the structure of our courses and learning pathway as well as the extensive learning support services available to students and their families. There will be a 15 minute question and answer session at the end.
