Our Teaching Method

The defining aspect of our school is the use of teaching and behavioural intervention methodologies based on Applied Behavioural Analysis. Teaching is provided in structured one-to-one and small-group sessions throughout each school day.

Autism Spectrum Disorders are complex neurological disorders that typically appear during the first three years of life. Autism affects the development of the child in three broad areas: communication skills, social skills, and repetitive or rigid behaviours. Children typically show repetitive behaviours, difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, limited play activities, and impaired social interaction.

The School uses  Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), a research-based approach, to improve the communication, social and behavioural skills of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The ABA method is scientifically proven to help children to achieve their fullest potential. For maximum impact, the ABA method should be started as early as possible, and the child should attend school regularly.
