I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Aspect Riverina. Organisationally we have a range of services to support people on the spectrum and their families. To do this as successfully as we do we have structured our approach using the Aspect Comprehensive Approach which draws on eight elements which work in unison with the person at the centre. Ensuring that we have our focus clearly articulated from the point of view of the individual we have incorporated the Autism initiatives (UK’s) Five point Star – Thinking, Communication, Expectation, Motivation and Sensory.
While the School has many strengths, Aspect’s most tangible strength is its supportive community. Our staff are totally committed to establishing and nurturing genuine relationships with our students and their families. Parents are always welcome at the school and it provides a rich network of support to the school and one another.
At Aspect, we continually work to improve our services, programs and approaches to supporting people on the autism spectrum and their families by applying the latest knowledge and evidence available and evaluating our services and programs for best practice.
At Aspect Riverina, our young people are our focus. We value the part we have to play in your child’s journey to adulthood and thank you for allowing us the privilege to share it with you.
Acting Principal, Aspect Riverina School
The Aspect Riverina School opened in 2005 and is the eighth school established by Aspect. Originating with 12 students in satellite classes at St Patrick’s Primary School Albury and Sturt Primary School Wagga, the school has grown to include 62 students from K to 12 at the Albury Campus, 15 students at St Patricks Satellite Class, and 10 students at Xavier Catholic High School Satellite Class. At our Main site, the Junior School caters to students from Year 1 to Year 4. Individual Planning remains a focal point, ensuring the unique needs of each student are addressed. Class sizes and an educational focus support social and emotional development, as well as communication needs based on individual strengths. In the Middle School (Year 5 – Year 10), we emphasise greater independence and help our students in understanding pathways to post-school options, including further education and employment. The curriculum is responsive to these identified goals.
Why choose our school?

Our evidence-informed approach, backed by decades of experience and research, provides students with the best opportunities throughout their lives.
