Options West London Community College
Options West London Community College is a well-established, independent living and life skills provision for adults on the autism spectrum. We offer individualised programmes which are designed to meet the complex needs of each of our students, as well as to increase their sense of personal independence.
We adopt a person-centred approach by identifying very specific areas of support required for each one of our students and then engineering a timetable specifically tailored to meet their individual needs. Timetables currently include sessions such as cookery, social skills, vocational skills and personal hygiene. We endeavour to equip our students with a skill set to lead as independent a life as possible; these can be things that you may take for granted like making a cup of tea, or something more complicated such as finding employment.
The College includes four sites which support adults with autism and complex needs: Colne Lodge, The Courtyard, Vine House and Aston House. To read more about these sites, please see our website.
