Parent's Role

Our Shared Role

Students with autism can be difficult to teach. Our teachers are required to learn a wide variety of skills over and above their basic training as teachers. We ask a lot of our teachers.

We understand that for an education programme to be successful there needs to be shared responsibility between the family and school. Together we can make a positive, transformational difference to the lives of each one of our students with autism.

The Needs of Families

We are committed to developing a positive relationship with parents as we share responsibly for the teaching the individual education plan (IEP) .

Our Eden teaching team strive to provide families with
  • An accurate picture of their child’s abilities, challenges and learning style and preferences

  • Feedback on teaching approaches and methods that have been successful

  • Encouragement to think about long-term goals for their child, and to begin the process of long-term planning early in each child’s life


Working Together

To formalize the collaboration process between families and our education team, we have developed: Parent Performance Agreement

This is an agreement for parents to pledge your support to the School’s efforts to provide a fruitful learning journey for your child.

Expectations covered in the agreement Include:
  • Ensure that your child abides with school rules

  • Follow-up on school reports
