We are a research based centre specialising in teaching children with autism, other pervasive developmental disorders and related developmental disorders, using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).

Teaching is comprehensive and aimed at enhancing intellectual, academic, social and emotional behaviours of children, so that they take better advantage of the educational and social opportunities available in their communities and require less professional attention as they grow older.

The teaching curriculum is entirely comprehensive, addressing all skill areas in deficit, including speech and language, communication, play and social skills, and self-help skills.

Teaching is conducted in a systematic manner, breaking down tasks into manageable components. The intervention is structured so that positive, appropriate behaviours such as play, language and socialisation are maximised through prompting and positive reinforcement. Excessive inappropriate behaviours are reduced through redirection, and alternate more socially acceptable forms of behaviour are taught. Teaching is conducted primarily in the child's home, with gradual integration into mainstream school placements. 

In addition to providing services for children with autism and/or related developmental disorders, we also provide services for individuals who may have specific difficulties in one or more of the following areas: social skills; toilet training; sleeping issues; behaviour management; eating/drinking skills; attention and/or motivation; and academic skills such as literacy or numeracy.

Services are available throughout the UK.
