Background

backgroundpageOur School and Foundation were officially registered under The Friendly Societies Act in August 2011, and the School opened its doors on September 5.  The initiative grew out of a home-based Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) programme set up by Kala Ramnath and Simon Bond (former Deputy British High Commissioner) for their son Rohan when they were posted to Guyana in late 2008. This programme was carried out for three years under the consultation and supervision of Dr. James Ellis, a registered behavioural analyst and clinical psychologist. During Dr. Ellis’s quarterly visits to Guyana to train tutors, he always made time to meet and assess other children and consult with their parents. He also established vital contacts with the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre through Mrs. Cynthia Massay and has given talks on autism at the Centre.

The goal of the School is to provide a highly specialized and individualized approach to meet each child’s individual and autism-specific needs.
