Farleigh College is fully approved by the DfES as a residential special school for pupils with Asperger�s syndrome.  These pupils often have many strengths and considerable potential but their progress is typically greatly impaired by the difficulties experienced by young people with Asperger�s Syndrome.  These involve difficulties in some or all of the following areas:

�    Anxiety levels
�    Social behaviour
�    Appropriate use and understanding of language
�    Obsessive behaviour and interests
�    Sensory sensitivity
�    Motor co-ordination

At Farleigh College we offer a total environment where young people are offered a safe, secure and predictable environment in which they come to understand their own areas of difficulties and learn skills and techniques in order to overcome them.  This ensures that they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enable them to rebuild their often shattered self-esteem and self belief.
