Why use TEACCH?

The aim of the TEACCH programme is to enable individuals with autism to function as meaningfully and as independently as possible in the community.

group in trainingTEACCH has developed an approach known as 'structured teaching'. The principles of structured teaching are:

  • Understanding the culture of autism (i.e. a way of thinking about the characteristic patterns of thinking and behaviour seen in individuals with autistic spectrum disorder)
  • Developing an individualised person and family centred plan for each client or student, rather than using a standard curriculum
  • Structuring the physical environment
  • Using visual supports to make the sequence of daily activities predictable and understandable
  • Using visual supports to make individual tasks understandable.
