Our Approach

At BeyondAutism, we use teaching strategies underpinned by Behaviour Analysis and guided by the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis and Verbal Behaviour, to teach our learners social, communication, academic and daily living skills tailored according to their specific needs. This forms part of our interdisciplinary approach with Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Teachers, to ensure a well-rounded, balanced curriculum for each of our learners that is focussed on their individual preferences and needs.

We use Behaviour Analysis to track progress and create positive, fun and motivating educational and learning experiences that make a real difference to our learners’ lives. Complex skills are broken down and taught step-by-step including daily living skills, communication, functional academic skills and social skills, to ultimately empower our learners to be as independent as possible, access their local communities and make informed choices about their ideal week.

Our approach includes:

  • Consistently high targets for every individual
  • High quality, inspirational and innovative teaching and learning
  • Involvement of an interdisciplinary team including Therapists and Teachers that ensure we deliver a well-rounded, and relevant curriculum for all our pupils
  • A safe, secure, caring and enjoyable environment in which to work, learn, thrive and grow towards independence
  • Inspirational and accountable leadership at all levels
  • A personalised curriculum fit for the 21st Century

We see parental involvement as of great importance and actively encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education, providing support and information that helps us build strong partnerships. 

Safeguarding is also paramount to our work and of increased importance due to the vulnerability and complex needs of our learners. Our internal and external supervision ratifies our internal judgements of the high-quality safeguarding procedures and processes.
