Stoa School is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. The trustees are in the process of creating a specialist school for children with autism who have a high level of communication and behavioural needs.
Stoa School – (SCIO) Registered Charity Number SC045381
The school will be the first in Scotland to deliver education through the use of Applied Behavioural Analysis/Verbal Behaviour, which has been shown to be one of the most effective methods of teaching children with autism. In its initial phase the school will operate as a day school, with plans to develop so that it can offer residential provision for those who need it. There are currently no ABA/VB schools in Scotland and no residential schools in Edinburgh for children with autism.
