Private School for high functioning ASD / Dyspraxic boy

My son has ASD and dyspraxia.

At the moment he is in a mainstream primary, and doing really well with a few hours of 1-2-1, OT and SALT in his statement. Academically he is fine, and not in any intervention groups. He is however in various SALT, social skills and drama therapy groups.

We are now considering local private schools, as we can see a few issues developing in his setting (I'll avoid a long explanation here). And I was wondering if any of you know of a good mainstream school, that caters for SEN support - OT and SALT mostly. One where they genuinely are inclusive.

We'd ben looking in SE London or nearby. Though if there are exceptional options in commuting distance we'd consider those too.

Riverstone school in Lee is mainstream but takes a lot of kids with additional needs.

Thank you. Have heard mixed reports of Riverston. Was also wondering about Thames Christian College in Clapham.

Have a look at Priory Lodge School too. In Barnes but kids seem to come from all over London. A specialist school for high functioning ASD.

I can recommend More House in Frensham.

OT and SALT are provided as part of the timetable for those who need it.

Very inclusive and my son is coming on in leaps and bounds.

They have day boys and weekly and full boarders.

There is a bus to and from Farnham station in the morning and afternoon too.
