"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" - Martin Luther King, Jr
I believe that only intervention approaches based on published scientific research should be considered when developing a programme for children with autism. Although there are many interventions currently being developed, I believe that a combination of teaching environments and teaching strategies based on Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) and SCERTS (social communication emotional regulation transactional support) are found to be most effective.
Programmes are frequently evaluated to ensure the quality of each child’s progress in addition to conducting on-going training for tutors and family members. This allows for the best combination of intervention methods that will be implemented for each child’s programme.
After an initial consultation, which will consist of an informal meeting with you and your family, a plan for intervention will be designed and training provided for all parties involved. This may include other family members and siblings.
