There is a small base in Dyce Academy which specialises in provision for children who have been diagnosed as having Asperger syndrome or high functioning autism. The base provides a secure environment for these children in which they can receive education suited to their special needs. They can, however, easily move from the base into school classes for part of their time in school. Pupils in the MICAS Base have Individual Education Plans (IEPs) with individualised targets. Again, parents are invited to regular reviews where progress is reported upon and future plans agreed. The unit uses the Structure, Positive (approaches and expectations), Empathy, Low arousal, Links (SPELL) framework. Volunteers to work with the pupils may be accepted.
