Evidence based contemporary ABA approach, involving a set of observable principles and key strategies is consistently applied across the centre. With over 90% of our staff trained in ABA, we identify the function of behaviour in order to provide a range of school-wide academic and social program to support student skill development and behaviour modification focusing on positive reinforcement.
The TEACCH approach is an evidence based academic program supporting our ABA approach for students requiring visual supports and interventions.
TEACCH is a 'whole life' approach aimed at supporting children, adolescents, and adults with autism through the provision of visual information, structure, and predictability (Cumine, Leach, & Stevenson, 2000).
EDI is an exemplary teaching method for combining structure and flexibility for effective engaged group learning whilst ensuring individual accountability. We differentiate & adapt lesson delivery techniques, using visual cues and scaffolding. 'Warm Ups', activating prior knowledge and checking for understanding enables students with limited or non-verbal communication to be included. Progress and attainment of all students learning is recognised and celebrated.
