PEAT can provide individual intervention for children and young people with ASD (or suspected) who are facing some sort of disengagement or exclusion from their education.
This one to one support would be provided by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst who can work across both the home and school environments for consistency providing recommendations and strategies for parents, teachers, teaching assistants, home tutors and education welfare.
In this instance the Behaviour Analyst will address the needs of the child/young person looking at the behaviour, when and why the behaviour (s) occurs and effective intervention for positive behaviour change and support.
This support is not time-limited.
For more information contact PEATÂ
PEAT professionally credentialed Behaviour Analysts are available to provide in house training to schools and other organisations for autism and behaviour management.
Training by PEAT professionals is ideal for teachers and support staff. All courses provide practical examples of real life situations and behaviours that may manifest in school.
