Welcome to Aran Hall School
We provide flexible 38 to 52 week residential care with education to children and young
people with a range of learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, both with
associated severe challenging behaviour.
The school has a 24 hour curriculum that aims to:
- Bring about a reduction in challenging behaviour
- Increase levels of functional communication
- Increase levels of self-care and independent living skills
- Increase opportunities for community participation and social integration
- Where appropriate, reduce the levels of medication
We use evidence-based practices, which have been rigorously evaluated in scientific literature to show an improvement to the psychological well-being, independence and educational
ability of young people.
We develop education, care and behavioural management programmes for each student, which follow these evidence-based practice models, therefore enabling us to demonstrate our students achievements. We are a leader in conducting and publishing clinical research that evaluates the effectiveness of the innovative programmes we run.
The School is developing an evidence-based programme for young people with learning
disabilities who present sexually harmful behaviour (SHB). The programme aims to reduce SHB via a reward programme for appropriate behaviour, sex education, counselling and
cognitive behaviour therapy. Staff receive regular and effective supervision and training,
including directive and 1:1 coaching from the programme team leaders.
