School Outreach Programme (SOP)
The School Outreach Programme (SOP) at Inspire is designed to target children presenting with any type of disability and/or challenging behaviour who currently attend mainstream schools with 1:1 support from an LSE and who are currently struggling to follow an adapted school/class curriculum.
This programme works on the principle of cooperation between Inspire staff and LSEs, as well as parents/guardians where together we work hand in hand in supporting children to achieve their individual needs.
