Q6 has been designed for students over the age of 19 with an Education Health Care Plan and a diagnosis of autism that will benefit from a Queensmill School–like College setting.

These young people would not be able to currently access other College provisions due to their levels of autism-related anxieties.

Q6 continues to use all supports for learning that have worked for children in Queensmill School such as a highly structured, low arousal environment in order to make sense of the world, the use of SCERTS, TEACCH, Zones of Regulation, PECS, and the consistent use of functional behavioural analysis by staff who are highly trained in autism to ensure that students can demonstrate appropriate behaviours and ways of communicating their wants and needs. These supports at Q6 are designed to reflect and support the more adult oriented approach to activities.
