An integrated and creative approach to learning disabilities

Our team has over 20 years of experience working with children, young people and adults who have learning disabilities and additional support needs, including:

  • autism
  • ADHD
  • development issues
  • emotional and behavioural problems

We work closely with the Aberdeen City & Shire Camphill Communities helping to create nurturing environments in which over 250 children, young people and adults can fulfil their potential.


Our approach is person-centred and widens the conventional approach (psychiatry, psychology, OT, SALT, physiotherapy) using:

in-depth patient questionnaire
an extended diagnostic perspective
a range of additional therapeutic options
We turned up for Jack’s interview with Dr Stefan with Jack wearing his grandma’s high-heeled shoes! Jack spent his time switching lights on and off and opening and closing doors. The reaction, or rather lack of reaction, to this behaviour was typical [of Camphill staff]. Jack was accepted for the person he was. At last there was a light at the end of what had been for us a very long and dark tunnel.

Our therapeutic programmes aim to keep the focus where it should be – on the individual and their potential to develop health and wellbeing.
