Why autistic students may choose homeschooling

At King’s InterHigh, we understand the unique educational needs of students with autism. Homeschooling for autism offers a range of advantages that can greatly benefit their learning journey and provide a nurturing environment for autistic students to thrive.

How homeschooling can help

Autistic children often have specific learning styles, strengths, and challenges. Homeschooling allows for tailored educational experiences that cater to their individual needs. Traditional school environments can be overwhelming for autistic students due to the sensory stimuli, crowded classrooms, and noise levels. Homeschooling for autism provides a controlled and familiar environment that minimises sensory overload, promoting a more comfortable learning experience. This can enhance concentration, reduce anxiety, and improve overall well-being. Homeschooling offers recorded lessons that students can go back and watch if they miss a class. This allows for adjustments in daily routines and gives flexibility for students to reach their full learning potential.
