Please recommend a good independent school in London and South london who is happy to accept a verbal high functioning asd child with a statement and aba shadow. Child initially supported throughout day at school with a view of fading out shadow.
Child already in mainstream nursery with aba shadow.

Looking for a school to start in Sept 2013 or next year.

I've heard that the Hall school and Finton House are both quite good with kids on the spectrum - not sure whether they allow ABA shadows but I would think it's quite likely and worth looking into?

Ds had a place offered at Ducks (Dulwich College infants) - he has HF asd, statement, and ABA. They were absolutely lovely and accommodating (the headmistress has a grown up ds with AS), and happy to have ABA. The only reason we ended up not sending ds there was we got a place (through statement/tribunal) at good state primary with ABA.

Pros and cons both sides I think. Also bear in mind fading out shadow might not be overnight. Also that private school under no obligation to fulfil statement, or to continue to allow ABA shadow. actually, state school don't always do so either but that's another story

PM me if you want more info.
