The Aspect Treetop School

Our main campus, located in Ashford, houses the school administration and 11 classes catering for students from Reception to Year 11 with current students’ age ranging from 5 to 17 years old. All of Aspect’s autism practice is underpinned by an autism-specific approach called the Aspect Comprehensive Approach.

Students have access to both indoor and outdoor play spaces with a variety of equipment including a trampoline, bikes, and playground equipment at their disposal. The school hall currently hosts a small library with books, games, building blocks, art supplies and access to the Commbox for music and educational programs. Students use our kitchen for cooking and life skills activities and future plans are in place for a new library. We also provide many other services, events and activities through community access programs.

Classroom staff are supported by our Learning Support Team consisting of the Principal, Psychologist, Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapists and executive staff. Each class teacher is also supported by a Student Support Officer (SSO)

The school has an active Parents and Friends group which organises events and fundraising throughout the school year.

Learn about the Aspect Treetop School

Curriculum

Aspect Treetop is registered and accredited by the Education Standards Board SA. The South Australian curriculum is followed. Students are involved in a range of compulsory subjects complemented by electives through their junior and senior schooling. Each student will have an individualised program with relevant adjustments made to ensure positive learning opportunities. We utilise community-based activities to assist students to generalise their learning experiences and the impact of their autism.

Technology

Our school uses technology in a range of ways to complement classroom learning. As with all components of our program this is individualised to the needs of students. We monitor very closely its use to ensure it is not the only means of delivering a program.

Positive Behaviour Support

The Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) approach is used to support our students to regulate their behaviour. PBS understands that challenging behaviour occurs for a reason, and is communicating important information about what the individual needs, wants and how to support them. It is likely that the demands of the student's situation exceed their ability to cope positively. We focus on students’ strengths and special interests to motivate learning and celebrate the diversity and talents of our students.

School Tours

School tours are held regularly throughout the year. Please contact the school to learn more.

Aspect Comprehensive Approach

The Aspect Comprehensive Approach supports all areas of the child's development. With the support of their family and the child, teachers and professionals develop individual plans (IP). The IP highlights the learning style, techniques and supports most appropriate to the needs of the child and provides a positive learning environment that focuses on their strengths or interests.
