Yes. We do work with children on the autism spectrum and ADHD. We have significant experience doing this.
So, are you a special school? Do you take other students also?
We are not a "Special" school. We are open to anyone interested in education as we think about it. We are also open to children with Autism and ADHD.
What do you expect from the children and parents looking to join you?
We expect the children to be themselves. We expect the parents to be interested in the larger questions about life, living and education. We also expect parents to play an active part in their children's education and the running of Farm Hill. We are a learning "community", of course!
