    We are starting to look for post 16 education for our daughter who has a normal IQ, ASD with PDA profile, ADHD and dyslexia with some behavioural issues. We live in London and she has been attending a weekly boarding school in Berkshire for the past 4 years. She likes horses, animals and cooking. I have notices 2 residential colleges in Hampshire but would be grateful for suggestions.

    Hi, there is a great book/directory, that I purchased 10 years ago (which is updated every year) which is excellent!

    Schools For Special Needs by Gabbitas Education

    My copy is for 2009-10 the 15th edition so getting a little old but it has been a brilliant book.
    It has SEN Residential Colleges as well as schools all over the UK but it is easy to use as it is split into sections ie Counties or Colleges etc.

    It is well worth the money as it includes all LA and Independent Schools, Colleges both Day and Residential.

    You can then look them up on the internet to see what each college offers ie animals etc and then phone them to ask if they have any PDA Children or have had PDA Training etc.

    Hope this helps
