The school provides a modified national curriculum, specialised teaching, additional support services, technical resources and a therapeutic environment. Inclusion within school, in mainstream schools and colleges has a high priority. Ashmount provides a total communication environment. Speech, Makaton signing, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and symbol systems are used throughout the school.
