Homeschooling a child with autism

An alternative to mainstream education

Autism is a spectrum. This means everybody on the autistic spectrum is different.

Some people on the autistic spectrum need little or no support. Others may need help from a parent or carer every day. For those that would benefit from an alternative learning pathway to mainstream schooling, Wolsey Hall provides a flexible approach to study in a home environment

Our courses enable families homeschooling their child to have a structured, yet flexible, approach to education in a suitable environment, as chosen by the family.

Lily is homeschooling with autism

Sixteen-year-old Lily turned to homeschooling after struggling with her autism and severe OCD in mainstream school.

homeschooling for children with autism

At Wolsey Hall Oxford, we see homeschooling your child as a team effort between us and you as a family. Every child is allocated a Student Progress Manager who will prepare an assignment schedule for your child, monitor their progress, and keep in close touch with you both.

Our Learning Support department is also on hand to provide support to you and your child or advice to our Tutors on how best they can aid your child through their unique homeschooling journey.

I must say enrolling Nicole at Wolsey Hall has been one of the best decisions we ever made. At school, Nicole’s progress remained extremely limited due to lack of support with her learning difficulties. Since being at Wolsey, Nicole’s English has come on leaps and bounds, from her spelling, to grammar, to organisation and formats of essays. The amount of time and support Nicole’s tutors, Pat and Michelle have invested in Nicole has been fantastic. Nicole’s academic knowledge and confidence has soared since being at Wolsey and I am extremely grateful to you all. (Nicole has segmatic pragmatic disorder high functioning autism, as well as suspected dyslexia).
