We are accredited facilitators for the National Autistic Society EarlyBird Programme, this is a Gold Star Behaviour Intervention Programme that we have been delivering for the past 12 years. These programmes are regularly evaluated by NAS and the feedback we have received is very positive.
We provide support for parents on;
Early Intervention and Behavioural Support.
This is an individualised programme designed to support the child and the family. This might include:
- Toileting and Hygiene.
- Eating/Sleep Hygiene.
- Implementation of PECS, Visual Support and Structure.
- Developing Communication.
- Useful techniques to help learning and communication.
- Preventing Problems and Developing Play Routines.
- Understanding and Managing Behaviour.
Following an initial consultation and observations with the family we then formulate appropriate interventions, provide advice, resources and ongoing support. We also offer support into nurseries/schools to upskill practitioners working with children by sharing and modelling strategies.
We adapt our interventions to accommodate family life and have a flexible approach and a positive attitude.
