    National Autistic Society 2016

  • ‘The video shown at his annual review surprised us with evidence of what our son can achieve independently after a year at Coleg. Family members have noted how he is more responsive, more mature and makes far more eye contact. He thrives in the outdoor environment and college routine. He has improved his skills in areas of strength (eg, cooking) and learned a range of new skills which he enjoys and which increase his confidence and self-esteem. He has benefited from the support provided by caring staff and therapists to provide interventions that encourage him to strengthen his communication and interaction with his peers. Generally, he is very much at peace with himself and comfortable at Coleg Elidyr and.’. 

    Parent 2019
