We strive to be exemplary exponents of TEACCH, a programme for individuals of all ages and skill levels with autistic spectrum disorders which is based on evidence regarding characteristic patterns of thinking and behaviour seen in individuals with autism.
TEACCH is at the very heart of our approach and have strong links with the University of North Carolina where this model of practice originated. We are the only organisation outside of the United States to offer the Beyond the Basics advanced TEACCH training course.
We value our staff and aim to transfer our specialist autism knowledge to all staff so they can provide the best care for our young people. An exceptional number of our staff are TEACCH trained including Teachers, Home Managers and Deputy Managers, plus two staff are TEACCH Certified Practitioners and three are TEACCH Certified Advanced Consultants which is a very significant achievement. We also want to share our experience and expertise with other professionals, parents and anyone wanting to learn more about supporting young people with severe autism. Our specialist training courses are available to all staff members as well as parents and other professionals in the autism community.
