The Stoa School relies on your donations to provide support for children with autism and their families.

Welcome to the Stoa School homepage. Stoa School is a registered charity and a specialist school within the Edinburgh area. our aim is to make a real difference to one of the most disadvantaged groups of children, namely children with autism who also have learning difficulties and a high level of communication and behavioural needs.

Stoa School is the first school in Scotland to implement a method of education called “Applied Behaviour Analysis”. This is a form of education which is widely recognised and used in schools across the world. It has been shown to be particularly effective for children with low functioning autism and can significantly improve the long-term outcomes for this group of children.

The first stage of the project is to establish a Saturday school (which opened in 2019) focussing on helping children improve their communication skills, behaviour, daily living and social skills.
