I CAN has two special schools which together provide intensive support for pupils aged 4-19.

Many children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) can succeed in mainstream education, particularly where schools embrace collaborative working arrangements and pupils have access to the specialist staff and resources they need.
However, some children with a severe or complex SLCN require specialist placement for some or all of their education. I CAN's schools provide an interdisciplinary approach that encourages pupils to make the best possible progress in all areas of learning. The individual needs of young people are assessed, met, monitored and reviewed within a consultative framework that includes the young people and their parents as well as professionals.
Meath School in Surrey takes day and residential pupils between 4 and 11 years old. Dawn House is located in Nottinghamshire and takes day and residential pupils between 5 and 19 years old. Both schools have been rated as "outstanding" in 2011 Ofsted inspection Care Reports.
As well as supporting children directly within their settings, I CAN schools also support the parents and families of these children, provide outreach to mainstream schools and facilitate academic research.
