PALS (Play and Language Support) Preschool opened in September 2008 and is a registered charity (charity number 18369). PALS provides early intervention programs for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We provide both morning and afternoon sessions. The school runs 5 days a week, 9am to 5pm, from September through to July and we enrol children between the ages of 3 to 6 years. PALS use an Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) approach to teaching in both of its classrooms.

At PALS we believe:

  • That our individual education programmes give the structure and support that enable positive learning outcomes for our pupils.
  • That all children have the right to aspire to the highest standards attainable and that their achievements should be supported, recognised and praised.
  • That parents have the greatest knowledge of their children and can make a major contribution to the success of their child’s school experience.
  • That children should be enabled to live as independently as possible. That they should be encouraged to make decisions and communicate independently.


PALS encourages a child centered, multidisciplinary environment, and works closely with each family at every step of the child’s education. We welcome input from other professionals ensuring consistency and a comprehensive service to the child and their family. PALS currently engage a consultant Speech and Language Therapist (SLT), Olive Gormley who has been trained in PROMPT, Lamh and Hanen Certified. Olive is proficient in administering a range of standardised speech and language assessments.
