The most interesting people you’ll find are ones that don’t fit into your average cardboard box.
Peoples’ brains are wired differently, and those differences can have a direct impact on their thinking and learning. Neurodiversity views the diverse spectrum of neurological difference as a range of natural variation in the human brain... not a deficit in individuals.
What counts as ‘neurodiverse’?
All being generally present from birth (indeed sometimes where ‘the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree’) dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and dyspraxia are classifications of ‘applied’ neurodiversity, while ADHD and autism come under ‘clinical’ neurodiversity.
Thriving in a world that was not designed for us
It's not hard... your neurodiverse child needs what we ALL need... to feel celebrated, challenged, supported and included. That way, they can truly thrive and strive. We provide:
- A strengths-based attitude
- Appropriate teaching for engagement
- Accommodations to remove barriers
- A sense of belonging
Your neurodiverse child deserves to have their uniqueness recognised. Summit Point School embraces all their magic. Call us today to see how.
"We were desperate to help our son’s self-esteem and confidence. Enrolling him at Summit Point restored his belief in himself."
"Being encouraged to demonstrate his knowledge using educational technology has helped remove barriers to my child’s learning and made him less anxious about tests and assessment."
"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
