ARC Sessions

ARC Sessions - Key Stages 1 - 4

ARC sessions offer a programme of social communication and therapeutic learning that give children and young people the skills for learning. This includes key functional skills, communication skills, thinking skills, personal and interpersonal skills. Delivered by experienced ARC workers held at the Headlands Grove site.

An ARC session is offered as a complete package including children and young people being collected by experienced ARC staff,  activity at ARC and then return to school/home (although some parents/staff may choose to transport children themselves).
